"Cupid" is a mixed media wall sculpture.  It is made from reclaimed cherry, pine, mahogany, walnut and acrylic paint.  I named it cupid because the raw pink mahogany wood and the dark stained mahogany seem so different in color and texture yet somehow they just look like they were supposed to lie together.  It reminded me of how some relationships work, even when they should not, while others that seem perfect end in flames.  Cupid is mounted on MDF board and ready to hang.

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.
