About The Artwork

This Series focuses on the combination of wood and sleek modern painted panels. I feel they are retro-futurist. The juxtaposition of the organic and warm wood grain with jutting, sharp, angular lines creates something similar to what the Mid-century modernists achieved and what is still popular in Scandinavian design (To make something organic seem very modern and space age). I like my pieces to feel at once modern but with a nod to the past. Perhaps the pieces suggest they were futuristic at one time, but in today's digital age, they are not. The name Atlas refers to the Greek god who was condemned to hold up the heavens for eternity. I feel this piece suggests the strength and vertical support of that tale in its upward movement and composition. The Art Deco inspired color palette across the series also nods to the past. Each piece is finished on the sides and wired to hang.

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 The ideas of young/old, past and future, modern versus outdated, technology, nostalgia and futurism all seem to find a place in my work.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.).
