Scott Troxel wasborn and raised in The Philadelphia suburbs in Pennsylvania, USA, and currently lives in Marmora, New Jersey.
As an abstract artist, the artist explores form, line, color, shape, texture and mass. Since he does not usually rely on a recognizable object in his work, he creates through the process itself. He starts out with a sketch or design and works through the creative process hands-on. His pieces always take several weeks to finish as he constantly changes them, until they feel just right. He likes to give his pieces a feeling of juxtaposition and a balance of opposites, in terms of textures and materials. For example, he will combine a recycled 60-year-old cherry table top with a piece of modern manufactured materials. The ideas of young versus old, past versus future, modern versus outdated, technology, nostalgia and neo-futurism all seem to find a place in his work. He also believes this ties into a distinctly human theme. For example, you can pinpoint a person’s age by the technology they grew up with (Black and white TV, Rotary phone, landlines, etc.).
