Silon is a four-piece wall sculpture.  It was made from a 60 year old solid cherry dining room table which was repurposed.  I like the idea of taking something that was designed for one purpose (a Queen Anne dining table in the 1960s) and re-using it in a completely different context.  To me, the spirit and soul of the wood remains.  Imagine the stories this wood could tell, as families gathered around it for decades to break bread.  Rather than put it in a landfill, the wood was harvested and now will live another life as a modern piece of art.  The work is four pieces.  The white and burgundy enamel paint provides stark contrast to the organic nature of the cherry wood grain.  The result is a very mod-century feeling piece that has been finished with tung oil and comes 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.
