Troy Dugas

By cutting and arranging printed materials such as vintage product labels on flat surfaces, Troy Dugas alters the original meaning of these printed images to create intricate radical structures. These constructions appear woven and imitate the appearance of hand-woven lace or scrupulously handcrafted fabrics. Their designs can be dizzyingly complicated, much like embroidered samplers, quilts, folk art, cathedral windows and Persian rugs. They reveal his awareness of the history of Minimalist, Pop and Abstract art, as he uses their vocabulary to make aesthetic decisions. His effortless patterns become a meticulously crafted series of beautifully rendered geometric shapes.


Dugas has shown his works in a number of solo and group exhibitions including Arthur Roger Gallery, New Orleans, Acadiana Center for the Arts, Lafayette, LA, Louisiana Art and Science Museum, Baton Rouge, LA, Cooper Cole Gallery, Ontario, Canada, and Islip Art Museum’s Carriage House, Long Island, NY, among others.
