Tarkka is an aggressive, angular minimalist, monochromatic contemporary wall sculpture. It is constructed with birch panels, acrylic washes, walnut hardwood and completed with a semi-gloss lacquer distressed finish. The acrylic wash allows the wood grain to show through the paint and creates an almost marble-like appearance as the warm brown wood grain shows through the gradient white tones. Tarkka is a piece that focuses on the composition, balance, and form by using a limited monochrome color palette. The piece diffuses multiple opacities of white alluding to a sophisticated modern vibe. The gold metallic background shows through the negative space and adds an elegance to angular piece. Tarkka is angler and aggressive for a small piece and commands the space. To me it feels like a well used piece of machinery, perhaps a saw or a swept fighter jet from the 50's. Distressed and imperfect, it projects a feeling of age and modernism.

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 The ideas of young/old, past and future, modern versus outdated, technology, nostalgia and futurism all seem to find a place in my work.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