About The Artwork

"Makaha (Wood)" is a minimalist and modernist, solid wood freestanding sculpture that brings bold statement to wherever it is placed. Artist Scott Troxel says "The piece is part of my popular "Small Pops" Sculpture Series which are inspired by my love for simple bold colors and a minimalists sensibility combined with organic wood grain. This piece has a modern feel yet also brings a retro vibe which results in an unexpected and contemplative feel to any area which it is placed. Similar to mid century modern furniture and graphic design, I strive to produce work that feels very modern yet has a retro futurists nostalgic nod to the past. I named them "Small Pops" because they are small in size, but they are clunky and feel much bigger than they are due to the bold color palettes and depth." The piece uses a combination of acrylic texture spray on 2" thick solid poplar wood and solid mahogany circle. The name refers to the playful composition of the piece and the tropical mid century design. It comes mounted on a white steel plate. Inside use only.

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 The ideas of young/old, past and future, modern versus outdated, technology, nostalgia and futurism all seem to find a place in my work.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