Achtung III is a vibrant large-scale mixed media wall sculpture. Made from solid American cherry hardwood and with painted layers of MDF finished with satin lacquer. This piece was inspired by mid-century modern design in both color and form. The color palette came directly from 1950's graphics on a book titled "Business and Society" by Joseph McGuire. The bold red/orange/purple/burgundy/white and black colors combined with the natural cherry wood grain to suggest this time period. The juxtaposed angles and colors create a surprising sense of both forward movement and calm. I am very influenced by Frank Stella's early work as well as other minimalists and modernists. As for the name, Achtung III, while there is a lot going on in this piece, it somehow has a zen-like effect in the room. Like the eye of a storm. It will be the focal point of any space, yet it manages to not overpower. This is the third piece in the series, each featuring a different color palette. The other two pieces are sold (one a private collector and one to Temple University).

Scott Troxel draws on the aesthetics of bygone technology and the forward-looking designs of the Atomic Age and mid-century modernism to make dynamic, retrofuturist wooden sculptures that evoke nostalgia for the past as much as they look to the future. Fascinated by the way pieces of technology, culture, and design reveal their age, Scott aims to make works that cannot be pinned to a specific era. Scott has exhibited his work at numerous fairs and exhibitions across the United States, including The Other Art Fair New York, and his works are held in private collections across the United States, Canada, Europe, and South America. As a purely abstract artist, I explore form, line, color, shape, texture and mass. Since I am usually not relying on a recognizable object in my work, I create through the process itself. I start out with a sketch or design and work through the creative process, hands on. My pieces always take several weeks to finish as I constantly change them, until they just feel right. I really like to give my pieces a feeling of juxtaposition and a balance of opposites, in terms of textures and materials. For example, I will combine a recycled 60 year old cherry table top with a piece of modern manufactured Azek decking. The ideas of young/old, past and future, modern versus outdated, technology, nostalgia and futurism all seem to find a place in my work. I also believe this ties into a distinctly human theme. For example, you can pinpoint a person’s age by the technology they grew up with (Black and white TV, Rotary phone, landlines, etc.).
