The UrbanSurf series (there were two pieces in this series) was inspired by clean, modern, Scandanavian design elements.  Bold, flat color palettes of magenta and bright blue and the light colored birch texture remind me of a bustling, modern city by a cold water sea. More Nordic than a city like Miami.  Bold, yet refined and understated, these pieces command attention in any room without being obnoxious. The sides are left to show the raw layered texture of the wood.  This piece is 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.
