Barbados II is the second painting in a series I made celebrating the vibrant colors of the island.  I have visited the island many times and I love the explosion of colors I see upon arriving.  Bright blues, teal, greens and yellows line fences, seawalls and fishing villages.  The crystal clear ocean water surrounds everything  on the island and wraps it in a turquoise embrace.  I tried to capture the spirit of the country and of the amazing people that live there, in this piece.

Getting to Know Scott

Mixed media artist Scott Troxel has always been fascinated with modern art and design. He pursued filmmaking in college, and later went on to a career in industrial design and product development. He now works mostly with wood to create abstract wall sculptures. Scott’s process involves breaking down objects or emotions to their abstract forms. The hard-edged lines of his sculptures have a discernible visual connection to mid-century modern design. The architectural forms in each piece juxtapose materials and textures varying from raw and exposed to polished and finished. Scott’s work explores themes of old versus new, organic versus manmade, futuristic versus vintage. The inherent tension in the art is relieved by a harmonic sense of visual balance.
