About

Achtung is a vibrant large-scale mixed media wall sculpture. The solid American cherry hardwood panel was repurposed from a 70-year-old wood dining room table. Layers of MDF panels are then laid on top of the cherry to create dimension and movement. This piece was inspired by mid-century modern design in both color and form. The bold red/orange, yellow/green, white, grey and black colors combine with the natural cherry wood grain to suggest the time period. The juxtaposed angles and colors create a surprising sense of both forward movement and calm. As for the name, Achtung, while there is a lot going on in this piece, it somehow has a zen-like effect in the room. Like the eye of a storm. It will be the focal point of any space, yet it manages to not overpower. This piece would be perfect for a corporate lobby, boardroom or in a residential space with high ceilings. About artist: Scott Troxel's modern abstract wall sculptures are complex, jagged and diverse. He crafts modern, bold and graphic work with a sense of Futurist minimalism in some pieces and other times he produces raw, rustic and texture-laden sculptures. Often times these conflicting surfaces can be found juxtaposing each other within the same pieces. The themes of time and age are an overarching theme in his work as he incorporates both new, repurposed and found objects into his pieces. He predominately works in wood as a medium, but also incorporates repurposed materials like plastics, PVC, metals, and other found objects. By simplifying forms around us, focusing on and repurposing old materials, he encourages us to consider the basic and enduring qualities of modern aesthetics. What's modern, what is the definition of new? Can modern be created with old materials? All the while, his work commands lasting attention with its dynamic, architectural and balanced compositions. His work has been exhibited internationally and acquired in private and corporate collections across the United States, Canada, and Europe. Scott has a Bachelor of Arts from Temple University and works out of his studio in New Jersey.
