Solarus is a mixed media wall sculpture made from solid mahogany wood. It is finished with acrylic pinlines and a semi-matte polycrylic clear coat for protection. Solarus is heavily influenced by design elements of the mid-century modern movement which allows the piece to be both organic and futuristic at once. Similar to sputnik style lighting and wall sculptures from the 1950's. Solarus is driven by form, line and composition rather than representation of an object.

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.
