"Akiah" is a bold mixed media wall sculpture made from repurposed cherry, poplar, pine, sassafras and mahogany woods.  It is finished with enamel paint and tung oil to enhance the wood grain. "Akiah" has a very modern, yet alluring tropical or South Pacific feel to it.  The warm celery tones of the poplar wood complement the darker reddish cherry.  The piece would look great in a mid-century inspired room, a coastal retreat or a room where you are looking for a bold statement 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.
