"Deco" is a modern, Art Deco inspired wall sculpture.  The clean lines and colorful palette suggest the modern aesthetic of that era.  It was created from one single piece of maple wood that I repurposed from a 60 year old dining table leaf.  Each piece is cut, carved slightly, painted and then placed back into the piece.  As with most of my work, I like to leave traces of how the wood was used in the past.  In this case, you can see the holes on each side that once held this leaf in place.  The work is wired to hang with finished sides.

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.
