"Old Soul" was made from repurposed wood including cherry, pine, oak, lacewood, walnut and mahogany.  The green paint on the pine wood came from an antique cupboard from the 1920's.  The cherry came from a 1950's dining table.  I love to combine old cast off materials with modern materials like plastic.  I also try to take something weathered and rustic and make it look modern from a design perspective.  The result with Old Soul is a contemporary looking piece with an innate rustiness.

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.
