Biography

A member of the Pictures Generation who showed with contemporaries Jack Goldstein, Robert Longo, and Sherrie Levine in the pivotal 1977 "Pictures" exhibition, Troy Brauntuch is well known for distinctive photo-based works and paintings created with Conté crayon on dark cotton. His subjects range from the ordinary (a cat, a dress, a stack of folded shirts) to the tragic (the 1990 Pan Am bombing), and include many representations of indirect Fascist imagery (as in silk-screened prints based on Hitler's architectural drawings).
