Scott Troxel
Marmora, New Jersey

Scott Troxel has always been fascinated with modern art and design. He pursued filmmaking in college, and later went on to have a career in industrial design and product development. Although he was always creating things, he continued to feel the urge to return to painting. His work originates from looking at objects or emotions, and breaking them down to their abstract forms. For instance, the bright colors of a fruit salad on a hot day, or the feeling of complexity in one’s life. He blurs the lines between modernism and abstract expressionism, sometimes using hard edged lines to compose his shapes, and other times painting more freely, allowing the process to determine the result. There is a very different mindset in each approach, one which involves planning and precision, and the other requiring action and instinct. The inherent tension in the work feels relieved by a perfect sense of balance. Scott stares at each piece for hours, changing things over and over, until he feels it is right.

Thank you Candice for the kind words about Zanzibar and my other work. It makes me happy knowing you are enjoying the painting. I will be adding new work shortly, as I am working on pieces for both Ugallery and a solo show I have coming up in August. Thank you again for your purchase.

I purchased Zanzibar a few weeks ago and am really enjoying the painting - bright grab you colors and intensity pulled together into a cohesive but dramatic piece - a joy to view throughout the day and evenings when the painting takes on a more muted look. Have to say I like quite a few of Scott's pieces. Feel he is very talented fellow!

Over the last week I wasn't feeling very "painterly". Sometimes I envy artists that stick to one medium or discipline. Say watercolor landscapes for instance. I am not sure why, but sometimes I just need to paint and other times, I really want nothing to do with an empty canvas. There are times were I just simply need to get out to the woodshop, look at some raw materials and start crafting a new wall sculpture. The creative desire is the same at the root, but the process is so different. Each process is equally satisfying but so different. Like having a cup of tea or a cup of coffee. Sometimes you just want one or the other I suppose.

I am very excited to be working on some new pieces for UGallery. Right now I have a few large canvases, 3-4 wood wall sculptures and an entire stack of reclaimed wood (Which I have not figured out what to make from them yet-but the texture is fantastic) in front of me. I have so many ideas but only so much time in the day. Better get to it!
