Truth and Subterfuge is a collaborative artists’ book by Whitney Platt and Nickolaus Typaldos. In the volume, which locates the uncanny in the everyday, Typaldos presents an idiosyncratic collection of digitally and physically manipulated images that is companionate with Platt’s dream-like and, at times, humorous poetry. Platt deftly constructs episodic and circuitous scenes that alternate between novel specificity and experiential abstraction. He mines aging in the context of American popular culture, and the temptations of nostalgia, with a tone that evokes elements of the tragicomic and melodramatic horror. In Truth and Subterfuge, his text is in dialogue with Typaldos’ playful pastiche of tropes, forms and mediums. He freely pulls from art-historical and commercial threads of the post-World War II era. His work is fundamentally collage, remixing the analogue and digital, the physical and virtual, freely-- perceptual play marked by an ever-relatable sense of doubt. Truth and Subterfuge is an engaging and droll document of decay and regeneration, earnest meaning-making that relays more questions than answers.
