Thomas Trosch: Paintings: New And Old
Fredericks & Freiser
536 W 24th St, New York
April 20 - May 26, 2017
Fredericks & Freiser is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Thomas Trosch. Over the past 25 years Trosch has developed a cult following for his wildly energetic and curiously sensitive oil paintings. Trosch began his career in New York and Los Angeles; where he exhibited regularly. Now, he lives and works in Baltimore and rarely releases his work. This will be his first solo show in New York since 2009.
Trosch typically paints society matrons in cluttered art-filled homes, galleries, and pool parties. Intuitively rendered and lavishly painted, his eccentric tableaus suggest multiple levels of reading. In this current body of work, Trosch pairs his wealthy women alongside the male presence of the bare–chested artist. High society and bohemia come together in brilliant passages of painterly excess.
