About

Sparrow is an elegant modern and minimalist contemporary wall sculpture. It is constructed with birch panels, acrylic and latex washes with a satin lacquer clear coat finish. It is completed with a gray MDF backer. The paint washes allow some of 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. Sparrow is a piece that focuses on the movement of the composition, balance, and form by using this limited color palette. As with all my work, the piece straddles line between mid century modernism and retro futurism. The finish is slightly distressed which adds the feeling of age to the piece. The name was inspired by the sparrows that frequent my backyard in the summer. I am inspired by the overly graphic look and lines of these birds, as if they were seemingly designed by a human hand. * wired to hang/shipping included keywords; cubism, bermuda blue color, navy, white, blue, wall hanging, assemblage, modern, contemporary sculpture, line, form and color, abstract sculpture, minimalist, bright and vivid colors, smooth surface, wall sculpture and installation, abstract composition, wood, altered and substituted canvas, minimalism and contemporary minimalist, linear forms, geometry, United States, contemporary color fields, Wyatt Kahn, fragmented geometry, focus on joints/connections, modern and contemporary design, modernism, American design *can be commissionned in any color/size 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.
