Scott Troxel
American Contemporary Sculpture by Scott Troxel - Achtung III

2019

About the Item

Achtung III Cherry, MDF, acrylic, lacquer on MDF 57” x 63” x 2” Achtung III is a vibrant large-scale mixed media wall sculpture. Made from solid American cherry hardwood and with painted layers of MDF finished with satin lacquer. This piece was inspired by mid-century modern design in both color and form. The color palette came directly from 1950's graphics on a book titled "Business and Society" by Joseph McGuire. The bold red/orange/purple/burgundy/white and black colors combined with the natural cherry wood grain to suggest this time period. The juxtaposed angles and colors create a surprising sense of both forward movement and calm. I am very influenced by Frank Stella's early work as well as other minimalists and modernists. As for the name, Achtung III, 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 is the third piece in the series, each featuring a different color palette. The other two pieces are sold (one a private collector and one to Temple University).

  • American Contemporary Sculpture by Scott Troxel - Ultra Marine
    By Scott Troxel
    Located in Paris, IDF
    Artwork made with birch, acrylic, satin lacquer & metallic gold venetian plaster UltraMarine is a mixed media wall sculpture. Made from acrylic washes on birch, MDF and gold metallic Venetian plaster paint. Finished with an elegant satin clear lacquer to enhance the wood grain. The multiple opacities of navy and indigo are almost denim-like in color and allow the brown wood grain to add texture and interest to the piece. Ultramarine takes on the abstract form of a soaring building or perhaps a church spire or other tall building in form. Ultramarine is a monochromatic piece which is minimalistic in nature, so the form, composition and the balance of the piece trump a definitive subject matter. However, the shape is reminesent of mid-century modernism, the sputnik design movement and futurism. The result is an elegant wall sculpture...

    "Home" is an abstract artwork by Stan Olthuis composed of acrylic paint on baltic birch panel. Home measures 40" high by 30" wide by 1" deep. Typical of the artist, this minimal geometric abstraction resonates with a rich charge. It's a sculpture and a painting. The lines are elegant. The artist's obsession with geometry and intersecting shapes is a clear gesture here. The eye delights in the formal play of shape and color, while the mind engages the material force of the wood and paint. From Stan Olthuis – "My work has always involved tactility and expressionistic energy. I visualize the story and imagery simultaneously, allowing the work to surprise me and come to life as I work. I am almost careless in how I use color and texture, facing the fear of improvising on-the-fly. I like to leave the obvious raw record of the process visible, but I believe a mystery remains." Stan Olthuis looks for expressive opportunities in found and harvested raw material – wood, stone, metal, rubber – and brings a fabricator's expertise to the work of making minimalist, joyful sculptures. Geometry is key, as are a sense of play and an adept's feel for sacred energies. His work is exhibited and collected internationally, including private and corporate commissions in Canada, United States, France, Japan and Norway. Stan is represented by Gagné Contemporary in Toronto and New York City, and has select works available through the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), and Motokawa Gallery in Japan. Stan Olthuis' formal education began in Chicago with Henk Krijger, the celebrated master printmaker, type designer, painter and sculptor. Back in Toronto, Olthuis graduated (with distinction) with a degree in Experimental Arts at Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD), studying under artists Fred Hagen, Tom Hodgson...
