"Volta" is a wall sculpture made from a solid piece of black walnut.  It is partially cut and partially left with a natural live edge.  I had other pals for this piece of wood, but it was so gorgeous in the natural state, that I just decided to accent it slightly.  To me it reminds me of an old stereo speaker, with the metal knob piece sticking out at the top.  Part rock and roll, part fine art, Volta walks the line.  Acrylic paint completes the piece.  Ready to hang and finished on three sides.

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.
