Aside from the bright salmon pink color, this work can be boiled down to the reductive process of sanding paper. Troy believes reductive is as important as additive, and sandpaper can work as well as a brush in creating layers. It brings an element of mystery in his works' relationship to time.
Works in TX
A video and book artist-turned-painter, Troy still hasn't lost the wonder of new materials like toys, molding paste, and most recently flower-patterned plastic bags. Rather than playing fixed roles in a prefabricated play, his works together explore a constellation of loosely related sentiments like serious absurdity, the ineffable scale of cosmic time, surveyor marks, and rat traps around New York. These moments when existential issues suddenly intrude into everyday life or vice versa are most pronounced in the contrast between the digital hot pink he frequents and the scratched, worn out textures like peeled subway ads that accompany it.
