"SunGate" is a minimalist and modernist wood wall sculpture reminiscent of both mid century modern forms and bold graphic design. It is part of my "Small Pops" Series which are small in size but feel much larger in a room as the depth and vibrant colors of the pieces command the space. The piece was inspired by my love for simple but bold colors and minimalist patterns 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. The piece is blue, yellow, white and orange combined with contrasting wood grain sides. The name "SunGate" refers to the playful composition of the piece, the color and the overall mid century vibe. The finish is a matte clear coat and the sides are solid poplar wood. The result is a fun, sculptural piece of modern art that creates conversation in any room. Wired to hang and finished on three sides.

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 The ideas of young/old, past and future, modern versus outdated, technology, nostalgia and futurism all seem to find a place in my work.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