Cathedral is a mixed media wall sculpture. It is constructed with a high end birch panel, acrylic, acrylic washes and completed with a hand waxed semi-gloss finish. The acrylic wash allows the wood grain to show through the paint and creates an almost marble like appearance as the warm brown wood grain shows through the white and off white tones.
Cathedral is a piece that focuses on the composition, balance and form by using a limited monochrome color palette. In the negative space between the pieces you can see the metallic copper colored backer which further accents tension in the piece. Inspired by the sleek lines of the Art Deco movement, Cathedral aspires to be both modern and retro in a sophisticated minimalist way. Wired to hang.
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.
