Private Act, 1999
A major survey of David Troostwyk’s work spanning 30 years. The publication traces a progression of the artist’s concerns from his earliest works to his more recent monochrome silhouette paintings that draw attention to the absence, rather than the presence of an object.
The book resides somewhere between a scrapbook and more formal anthology, juxtaposing text works with paintings, and 3D pictures with photocopied images. An essay by Stephen Bury gives an insight into the artist’s motivations and concerns.
