"Between You and Me" is a mixed media wall sculpture. It is constructed from solid mahogany, acrylic and acrylic washes. This piece is at once both rustic and modern feeling. Distressed black, white, yellow and pinks accent the mahogany's rich brown/reddish color. The result is a striking piece that can accent any room. The subject matter is abstract, so I leave it up to the viewer to decide the meaning of the piece and the title. What do you see in it?

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.

I purchased Zanzibar a few weeks ago and am really enjoying the painting - bright "grab you" colors and intensity pulled together into a cohesive but dramatic piece - a joy to view throughout the day and evenings when the painting takes on a more muted look. Have to say I like quite a few of Scott's pieces. Feel he is very talented fellow!- C Hubbard
