Kevin Box defines a goal of giving as motivation for his work:  I desire that my sculptures uplift, inspire, and encourage…  Working with mostly bronze and stainless steel cast forms derived from folded paper, Kevin’s sculptures visually explore the creative process as much as they provide a sense of hope and harmony.   His sculptures use paper as the starting point for both an ‘organic burnout’ casting process as well as his subject matter.  A blank piece of paper is a place to record thoughts and plan out new possibilities; as Kevin describes, I see a piece of paper as a clean slate, white as light, perfect and full of potential.  Folding paper into the form of animals, boats, and Developing permanence out of fleeting moments and fragile origami and folded paper forms has been integral to Kevin’s artistic purpose.
