"The Ghost of You" is an intimate mixed media, wall sculpture.  Made from ambrosia maple (Which has a very distinct pattern), cherry, padauk, ebony and acrylic paint.  It is very minimalistic in design, but very bold and striking.  The wood tones suggest an inherent organic quality while the geometric composition works to undercut that feeling.  The result is a feeling of both tension and calm.  Hence the name "The Ghost of You."

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.
