Carousel is a vibrant abstract expressionist painting.  Like lots of my abstract paintings, I begin it with no preconceived notions of what the piece would look like prior to starting it.  The process of creating takes center stage, rather than subject matter.  The result is Carousel, a modern piece that is bold, graphic and interesting. As for the name, the piece reminded me of a carousel in colorful motion on a hot summer day.

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.
