Convergence1 is the first in a pair of two.  The piece is constructed from solid mahogany finished with tung oil and acrylic paint mounted on MDF.  The inspiration for this piece in terms of design and color came from the mid-century modern movement.  I love to combine the warmth of organic wood tones with clean modern colors.  In this case, the brown, orange, tan and peach tones suggest a 1950s color palette.  The design harkens back to the sputnik-style decor elements that were popular during this time. The piece is ready to hang on the wall.

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.
