Join us throughout the month of July at Axioms, where ÆRENA sculptor Kevin Box captures the duality of the fragility of paper and the strength of metals, in his diverse and stunning body of origami inspired works. After a decade spent perfecting and evolving his signature technique, Box is now able to cast paper in bronze, stainless steel, and aluminum, giving us sculpture that emanates both lightness and durability.
Collaborating with world-renowned origami artists is the hallmark of Box's sculptures, and you can see their combined skill in monumental sized horses, complex unfolded castings and miniature mice. Let your heart take flight with his beloved cranes, lose yourself in his mesmerizing paper airplanes or embrace the meaning behind his renown Rock Paper Scissors series. Box's work invites you to touch and feel the sculpture just as surely as it intrigues, delights, and touches you. Contact your Art Consultant today regarding acquisition of any of these beautiful sculptures. Please also visit our gallery locations to preview the works in person, or view on our website, throughout the month of July.
Box's “Origami in the Garden” exhibition has traveled to botanical gardens across North America since 2013, and he has more than 20 works of art in public places in the U.S. Box's art is in private and public collections throughout the world, including Morocco, Perth, and Oita, Japan, as well as The Four Seasons in Washington D.C., the Austin City Symphony in Texas, and the African American Performing Arts Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
