This is a vibrant yet fractured abstract painting.  It is a reflection of our internal struggles, that few ever really see.  All too often we walk around and keep most of our internal dialogue to ourselves, whether good, bad or indifferent.  Stress, fear, desire, ambition, faith, joy and other factors churn within us.  "Minor King" is a reflection of what I envision this internal conversation to look like visually.  The result is sometimes we get caught up looking inward all the time when we should really looks around us and be present in the moment without the constant internal noise.  The name comes from a song which sates "It's just a minor thing and I'm a minor king."

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.
