Fulcrum Gallery: MONUMENT - Troy Gua

Fulcrum Gallery Presents:


January 21
st - March 13th

Opening Reception Thursday January 21st 6-9 pm

Artist Talk / Closing Reception Thursday February 18th 6 pm

Troy Gua is a product of the 1970/80's shiny American Dream. His multi-faceted work embodies a glossy immortality and deceptive complexity that encourages closer investigation.

Enter “Monument” : a response to the glossing over of reality specific to the United States' wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This installation is my memorial to loss, but it is not an attempt to answer questions, because I don’t know that there are any answers. I’m not a soldier and I have never seen war. There are terrific horrors that our service men and women are experiencing that I can scarcely imagine. How do we reconcile these experiences? How do we grieve these losses?"
