Baseline is a mixed media wood wall sculpture.  It combines mahogany, cherry, walnut, pine, AZEK decking, and aluminum materials.  Some have been repurposed.  In this piece I am exploring both old and new (repurposed versus new) and rustic versus modern.  Some pieces have been left raw with saw marks, while other pieces are shiny and finished.  The result is a piece that is at once both interesting and modern, while staying true to it's organic roots.

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.
