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.

“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.

View “Painterly Memories” Exhibit Catalog 2020

There is something inherently romantic about Romona Youngquist’s paintings. Her pastoral scenes, often picturing a lonely farmhouse in the midst of a breathtaking landscape, are reminders of the Arcadian delights celebrated by Virgil in Ancient Rome. They also show, in a very subtle way, our place within creation, and are a humbling reminder that humanity can live in harmony with nature.
Each of Romona Younquist’s paintings is a symphony, an ode to nature and its beauty. Through strong design, rigorous composition, and the effective use of contrast, Youngquist creates or re-creates peaceful and uplifting scenes. Her paintings invite the viewer into a place they want to stay or return over and over. Each offers universal serenity and a feeling of homecoming.
Youngquist’s paintings nurture the soul. Nature, as a comforting source of physical and spiritual sustenance, is depicted with modulated tonalities and balanced proportions. Youngquist uses a limited palette and mixes every hue with extreme care while allowing splashes of vibrant colors to instill energy and guide the eye. Very few living painters have been able to achieve such aesthetic balance. This is why Romona Youngquist is so admired, so talked about, and so collected, both nationally and internationally.

Romona’s show will be on display until March 23rd, 2020.

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.

Michael Carson “Mixed Emotions”

CAR420

Bonner David Galleries is excited to announce the latest show, by internationally collected painter, Michael Carson. This year he will feature his characteristic figures in an array of media. In addition to his highly collected oil paintings, which have gained recognition and attention in the art community, he is expanding to use new techniques on metal and paper.

His process on metal, which he calls ‘unpainting,’ depicts his same poised and moody figures in a fresh and unique way. He first paints the metal with a coat of white paint, then sands away the layer of white to create the figures. He then finishes them by adding a special coating to help the metal rust in a way to add dimension to the shadows and figures.

Carson has also begun to create smaller original works on paper. Using a combination of charcoals, graphite and water, he creates black and white figure drawings with all the elements characteristic of Carson’s work.

This beautiful, must-see show opens on March 20th, with a special artist reception from 6-9 pm. The show will be hung in the gallery through April 10th.  This is a show you don’t want to miss, so mark your calendars and come see these incredible works for yourself.

 

Gail Morris “Western Exposures”

MOR487

Bonner David Galleries is excited to announce landscape artists, Gail Morris’ latest solo show, “Western Exposures.” Her work is characterized by the way she utilizes bold, vivid colors to create stark, minimalistic scenery, simulating the momentary emotions evoked by a first impression. This year, will feature paintings inspired by her recent travels, particularly throughout the West. In addition to viewing many beautiful scenes, she had the opportunity to take several trips in small planes, allowing her to gain a new perspective of the surrounding scenery. This bird’s-eye view is evident in several of her new pieces, as she finds beautiful and interesting ways to translate landscape to distinguished works of art.

Morris’ distinct style provides a fresh and sophisticated take on the western landscape, which she loves and adores.This show opens on March 6th, with a special artist reception from 6-9pm. The show will be on display in the gallery through March 17th, so make sure not to miss out.

Romona Youngquist “Back to the Country”

Garden Path 40x40

Romona Youngquist’s work can be recognized by the picturesque barns and country houses, bright pops of color, and strong brushstrokes that make up her idyllic country scenes. The works from her newest show are no exception, allowing you to travel from the congestion of city life, to the serenity of the country.

Although Youngquist uses her surroundings in Oregon as a primary inspiration, each scene feels timeless and place-less, as if it could be right out a story book, or your favorite memory of home. The tension in her deliberate, impressionistic brushstrokes resolves within the serene images of rural fields and barns, resulting in a dramatic landscape full of tension, intrigue and beauty.

Her show will open on February 20, 2014 with a special artists reception from 6-9 pm. The show will then hang in the gallery through March 17th. Be sure to stop by and see these wonderful works in person, before it’s too late.
