About

(Made with Pine, Walnut, Acrylic and Acrylic Washes with varnish ) Urban Cactus was inspired by the Southwest United States. Places like Red Rocks, Zion National Park, and Joshua Tree. Raw select pine (pine without knots) is carved and shaped with woodworking tools. Rigid wood is worked until it feels fluid and flowing. Similar to how a rounded cactus stands in contrast to the rough, sharp and unforgiving desert it resides in. The wood is varnished and polished, it almost takes on a marble-like appearance. keywords; white, monochrome, wall hanging, assemblage, modern, contemporary sculpture, line, form and color, abstract sculpture, minimalist, 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 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.
