DESCRIPTION

Kevin Box's new sculpture,"Paper Navigator", will be unveiled at the opening. Presently, the "White Bison" strongly stands watch in front of the gallery while exuding the fragility of life through the simulated curve, crease, and memory of its origami-like surface. Regal and steadfast, this is Box's latest origami inspired form in cast stainless steel in a limited edition of 3.

We are delighted to share the innovative work of sculptor Kevin Box. Living Waters stands twelve feet high, but began as a small paper boat that sat on Kevin's desk for years before the inspiration came for this newest version of his lifeboat series. It was a leap of faith to cast the paper boat at this scale, however he wanted this lifeboat to contain a sense of fearlessness and adventure. Kevin has included an origami bird to stand at the helm of a smaller boat, Paper Navigator, to remind us that as small a creature as this delicate bird can steer a ship to calm waters. Noting that innovation often results from collaboration, Kevin welcomes creating alongside others. Though Kevin's work is often monumental his most recent collaboration shows a fondness for the miniature. Armijo's Mouse, which fits in your hand, was made in concert with local framer Tim Armijo. These and other new works are on view through August 11th.
