Thomas Trosch

Musical Comedy Medley #1,1996
"... I was particularly struck by the fact that no writer I came across mentioned Thomas Trosch’s paintings. Perhaps that’s because he is so good at what he does, reviewers might have mistakenly thought they were actually looking at Stettheimers. ... Her palette ranges from high-key to pastel, all of which Trosch pushes to the point of courting the sickly sweet, as in the largely pink encaustic, 'Two Ladies' (2013). The other reason that writers might not have singled out Trosch is because he has not had a solo show in New York since 2009, which is more than a generation and nearly a lifetime in art-world years. So you can imagine my delight when I learned of Thomas Trosch: Paintings New and Old at Fredericks & Freiser (April 20 – May 26, 2017). ..."
