Troy Dugas creates intricate, large-scale cut paper assemblages from his extensive collection of unused product labels. This material is cut or shredded to produce artwork that appears woven. Repetition, pattern, symmetry, precision, and scale are used to distract from the label’s original purpose. The essential elements of color, shape, and line are utilized in a new way, and the altered context of the source material provides new meaning. The immediacy of the graphic label is transformed into aesthetic sensation and contemplation. Void of any specific religion, the work reflects the spirit of a scavenger creating his own myths. Troy received his MFA from Pratt Institute in 1997 and currently lives and works in south Louisiana. He has been awarded grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the Louisiana Division of the Arts and his work is in the collections of the Frederick Weisman Foundation and the West Collection.

Troy is represented by the Arthur Roger Gallery in New..
