Warbird is a modern mixed media wall sculpture.  It was inspired by science fiction, spaceships, and old military vehicles.  But like Mid-century modern design, it combines the use of organic materials, similar to old war machines which often times incorporated both wood and metal in the design.  Warbird features an large aluminum and copper disc at the center which was part of an industrial machine.  The MDF and wood frame outlines the center disc.  Like old  utilitarian machines, WarBird shows signs of age and distressing, perhaps it has been through several decades and is still in service.  The solid cherry wood was repurposed from a 60 year old Queen Anne table. I really love to combine items that where never meant to be paired together and make them work in harmony. 

My goal was to make a piece that is at once, both modern and vintage.  It could be old or could be from a future time.  To me that raises questions about age and machinery.  Some machinery lasts more than human life and lives on for generations.  Other equipment lasts mere years and it sent to disposal as obsolete scrap.  

This piece is extremely heavy.  Substantial wall support will be needed for mounting (Must be stud mounted).

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.).
