Tarkka (wood Art Deco wall sculpture minimal geometric modern creme vanilla

2020

US$3,000

About

Tarkka is a dynamic, angular minimalist, monochromatic contemporary wall sculpture. It is constructed with birch panels, acrylic washes, walnut hardwood and completed with a semi-gloss lacquer distressed 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 gradient white tones. Tarkka is a piece that focuses on the composition, balance, and form by using a limited monochrome color palette. The piece diffuses multiple opacities of white alluding to a sophisticated modern vibe. The gold metallic background shows through the negative space and adds an elegance to angular piece. Tarkka is angler and aggressive for a small piece and commands the space. To me it feels like a well used piece of machinery, perhaps a saw or a swept fighter jet from the 50's. Distressed and imperfect, it projects a feeling of age and modernism.

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.
