VIEW IN MY ROOM
Heartbreaker is a large bold wall sculpture made from Poplar, Cherry, Mahogany and Azek (man made PVC material) with acrylic paint. Like most of my wall sculptures, I try to combine elements of past and present, the notion of age and design, man made versus organic. Similar to the way a mid century modern chair feels futuristic, though it is made from wood, I try to take organic materials and make them feel manufactured or crafted into something quite modern. While many people see many things in Heartbreaker, I leave it up to the viewer to decide what they want in the piece. It is open to your interpretation. I named it "Heartbreaker" because to me the form was reminiscent of a missile or bomb, yet also a heart. The 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 The ideas of young/old, past and future, modern versus outdated, technology, nostalgia and futurism all seem to find a place in my work.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.).
