Apollo III (wood art deco wall sculpture abstract geometric modern design stella

2018

$3,200

About

"Apollo III" is a mixed media wall sculpture made from American Cherry hardwood (Reclaimed from an antique table), MDF, acrylic paint and tung oil (on the wood only). 

Apollo has a matte painted finish, while Apollo II features a glossy finish. Series of 2 pieces. 

That artist's obsession with taking old things (In this case a 60-year-old Queen Anne style cherry table) and turning it into something modern has resulted in an impressive new body of work combining natural wood and flat painted panels. The juxtaposition of the organic and warm wood grain with sleek modern and angular lines create something similar to what the Mid-century modernists achieved and what is still popular in Scandinavian design. Scott's pieces feel at once modern and retro. Perhaps they were futuristic at one time, but in today's digital age, they are a nod to the futurism of the past. I want Apollo II to make the viewer think about the past through the warmth of the wood, but also look ahead to what the future may hold. Either way, Apollo II has an inherent strength and heaviness to it. Like the door or hatch to a fortress which provides safety and security in an uneasy world. 

Apollo II is three dimensional and the base is 1" thick solid cherry. Layers of MDF provide depth and interest. 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.
