"Outlier" is a modern, minimalist, wood wall sculpture made from birch, washed and metallic acrylic and finished with furniture wax. The paint has been sanded back on the edges of the shapes to provide an elegant "outline" of the individual pieces which are mounted on a metallic gold backer. The gold shows through between the pieces and in the negative space. This piece started in 2018 and I grew frustrated with the piece. I set it aside and recently discovered it behind some other pieces in the studio. With fresh eyes I pulled it out and finalized it in 2020. The name "Outlier" comes from the fact that I traditionally do not work in a black monochromatic palette (This is my only piece in solid black), so it is perhaps a slight variation of my normal work which was two years in the making. The result I think, is an elegant, striking and introspective piece which can command the space with a modern chic.

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 The ideas of young/old, past and future, modern versus outdated, technology, nostalgia and futurism all seem to find a place in my work.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