Jake Troyli, Untitled (Self-Portrait), 2021, ink on paper,  7.25 x 10,” courtesy Monique Meloche Gallery *All proceeds from this work will benefit ACRE's Southeastern US Equity Scholarship which enables artists of color residing in the Southeastern United States to attend the ACRE Residency free of charge.* Jake Troyli investigates the construction of otherness and the commodification of the black/brown body, confronting and exploring labor capitalism and sweat equity as a demonstration of value. He makes energetic paintings, often featuring a self-portrait or avatar of himself embedded in engaging scenes, with a markedly classicist approach. Utilizing techniques formalized during the High Renaissance, underpainting and toning are central to the conception of each work, beginning with a burnt sienna foundation to establish values. In a timely evolution of his practice, Troyli expands the functionality and influence of his figures, imbuing them with new agency and establishing absurd narratives to consider the timeless conversations surrounding the preconceived notions of identity and value structures. Through the presence of prop-like iconography and compositions reminiscent of community theater sets, Troyli positions his figures as performing commodities constantly on display.
