Unfolding the Magic: Kevin Box

Kevin Box, Folding Planes” 50” x 29" x 30” $28,000 stainless steal bronze on stone 

Kevin Box  “Folding Planes”  50” x 29” x 30”  $28,000  stainless steal bronze on stone 

This unique piece is available exclusively through Bonner David Galleries.


There is something magical about Kevin Box’s sculptures. Each one of them is an ode to imagination, to simplicity, to childhood fun. Viewers, however, experience much more than just a trip back in time. In his powerful steel sculpture entitled “Folding Planes,” Kevin Box brings us to the realm of memory, innocence, and fun. How do you make something as fragile as paper last forever? How do you make good memories last for always?
Most of us can relate to paper airplanes. We learned the craft of paper folding from our peers. We all went through a phase of initiation, intense production, and experimentation, before we, in turn, passed on the art to younger siblings, younger schoolmates, or even, for some of us, to our own children. Box emphasizes good memories, the ones we keep deep in our hearts.
Kevin Box’s work is the result of years of pioneering and perfecting the art of casting paper in stainless steel. Viewing himself as a 21st century artist, Box has chosen stainless steel as his medium of choice, not just for its durability, but also for how it relates to this brave new world. Paper is the central theme to Box’s work. The artist weaves together metaphors for the passing of time, the power of the imagination, and the magic of childhood.

July 2020 Featured Artist – Michael Carson
“Contemplative Moments”

Image of oil painting "Blue Flowers" by artist Michael Carson, on display at Bonner David Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona and New York

Michael Carson has been called the “post-millennial Toulouse-Lautrec.” Like the turn of the century French master, Carson is a self-described people watcher. He paints figures with a soft, sophisticated touch. His works summon a pensive, ethereal feeling in the viewer. His subjects seem absorbed in a world of contemplation and inward thinking.

Working loosely and spontaneously, Michael Carson makes every brushstroke count. His use of color and light contributes to the overall meditative mood of his paintings, although he allows the viewer to interpret meaning using their own experience. These captured moments and this focus on atmosphere make Carson’s art both personal and universal and appeals to an increasing number of collectors in the United States and abroad.

Claudia Hartley’s

paintings are incredibly “happy.” They are also undoubtedly colorful. Her landscapes are an unrestrained celebration of life and nature. Originally from the South, Claudia Hartley now lives in Arizona and paints the desert. Her work has the structure of traditional, idealized landscapes, but with an entirely contemporary aesthetic (staccato brushworks and non naturalistic, expressive colors).

Hartley considers herself a fauvist, synthesizing the techniques of pointillism and post-impressionism. She mostly applies her masterful skills to depict landscapes of the Southwest. Her paintings are an hyphen between impressionism and abstraction in which color is completely set free. In tune with nature, Claudia Hartley uses intense color as a vehicle for representing mood, light, and space. She has mastered the emotional potency of color, and her paintings convey both passion and happiness.

Claudia Hartley is featured in the February issue of the American Art Collector and Phoenix Home & Garden magazine.

The new paintings created by Michael Carson have a timeless quality. His imagery transplants viewers to a world of intimate moments and reveals the emotional contact onlookers get from gazing at the human figure. The sublime beauty of Carson’s subjects is reminiscent of the “Truth, Goodness, and Beauty” advocated by Aristotle, which transcends the limitations of place and time. While timeless, the imagery in Carson’s paintings retains, however, a distinct, contemporary flair. Michael Carson’s show at Bonner David Galleries, opens during the holiday season, on December 13 and will be on display until January 13. His spectacular new work is guaranteed to make an impact on any viewer.

Collectible either singly or together, this unusual exhibition continues the evolution of this renown artist. His remarkable ability to blend colors will create a prominent dual effect that must be seen in person.
