Scott Troxel draws on the aesthetics of bygone technology and the forward-looking designs of the Atomic Age and mid-century modernism to make dynamic, retrofuturist wooden sculptures that evoke nostalgia for the past as much as they look to the future. Fascinated by the way pieces of technology, culture, and design reveal their age, Scott aims to make works that cannot be pinned to a specific era, as they seem to feel both modern and nostalgic.
Inspired by artists like Frank Stella, Martin Puryear and Leon Polk Smith, Scott’s works have a distinctive aesthetic that references mid-century modernism and the pop art palettes of the 60’s and 70’s. All grounded by precise craftmanship and a design oriented sensibility that makes for something entirely his own.
Scott has exhibited his work at numerous fairs and exhibitions across the United States, including Scope, Texas Contemporary, The Other Art Fair and Art Wynwood and his works are held in private collections across the United States, Canada, Europe, and South America.
