THROUGH THE PAST
January 25 - March 31, 2022
Online Viewing with ARTNET
galerie bruno massa is thrilled for its first time to show recent artworks from Scott Troxel. He 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 wall 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.
The artist is inspired by design and technology throughout the twentieth century, such as mid-century modernism, the Atomic Age, and art deco. He tends to expand upon Frank Stella’s famous quote “What you see is what you see.” While the viewer tends to bring his or her experiences to Scott’s work and “find” something familiar in it, his goal is to create art that features strong composition, balance, color, form and movement. His work relies heavily on these pillars. He then incorporates themes of aging, organic versus man-made, and new versus old in the sense of how we engage with technology, design, and aesthetics across generations. Specifically, he uses the example of midcentury modern design.
According to Scott “It has the rare ability to be timeless yet dated, modern but retro, organic and grounded but still futurist and otherworldly. I find this concept fascinating, and it is the foundation of what I try to achieve in my work. I want it to feel both modern and bold but perhaps from another era—when it was cutting edge, before time passed it by and changed the definition of “new or modern.” An example of his work that demonstrates this idea would be “Achtung VI.” The piece is bold, graphic and nods to both hard-edge abstraction and post-painterly abstraction. But it’s also modern and slightly distressed and grungy. The color palette was taken from a 1950’s book cover that has amazing design and color in the golden age of graphic design and color theory.
Scott’s works have been shown at The Other Art Fair, SCOPE Miami, Art Wynwood, Texas Contemporary, and SOFA Chicago. Scott’s work is in private and corporate collections worldwide including: The Shard Building-London, The Hotel Del Coronado, Westin Hotels, Wyndham Hotels, Embassy Suites, Hotels, Marriot Hotels Hilton Hotels, The View II at Temple University Purdue University, Four Seasons Hotel Group, Capitol One Corporate Headquarters, Price Waterhouse Cooper Headquarters in Manhattan, NY & The Hadle, Philadelphia, PA.

Musician Caye Milfont interprets Cantos de Taiguara in a show It's still time for 2022 in Brazil.
CayêMilfont is a composer, singer, instrumentalist who came from a family of musicians. His father Aloísio Milfont was a pioneer in Brasília, where he participated in the city's carnivals with several marches of his own and accompanied, on the guitar, several successful artists of the time. Surrounded in the family environment by musicians, uncle Gilberto Milfont, singer and composer, made his first public performance in 1936. Born in Fortaleza, based in Brasília DF, CayêMilfont, established himself in Rio de Janeiro since 1975, being one of the founders of the Open Art Movement, at MAM, alongside Tharcisio Rocha, Tony Bahia, Paulo Gomes, Joanna, Sandra de Sá, Sara Benchimol, among others.
Currently, Caye Milfont lives in Rio de Janeiro and dedicates her days to rehearsals for the Show Still time, performing Cantos de Taiguara. The project that has as musical direction by maestro José Cabrera, artistic direction by Rinaldo Genes and script and texts by CayêMilfont, the show brings an authorial collection mixed with songs by other MPB authors. The proposal refers to a specific project about “Taiguara” “Cantos de Taiguara”, a song by Cauê Milfont himself - Refrões, where he shared the return of Taiguara in Fortaleza - CE in a show for world peace.
