"Heartbreaker" is a large, modern mixed-media wall sculpture.  It is constructed from distressed poplar wood, reclaimed mahogany, Azek, tung oil, and enamel paint.  This artwork is open to interpretation as each viewer seems to see something different in the piece, which I feel is terrific.  The crisp white manmade Azek material juxtaposes the distresses poplar hardwood to make it both organic and engineered, at once.  It feels as if it came from the atomic age and nods to mid century modern design.  It is bold, striking and impossible to ignore in a room, due to the pieces thought provoking heart or missile shape.  The piece is finished on the sides and wired 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.
