This was created for The Gallery Route One (Point Reyes Station, CA.) Box Show of 2014; this is our annual fundraiser, lasting from August 1-September 14 this year. It's a silent auction until the final night, when the auction goes on live at the gallery. The box seemed to be the size an artist might have around the studio, and I determined that I would make the box as if it were used by Jasper Johns. It has wax, paper clips, pushpins, a stick of pastel, a matchbook, a stencil, some paint drippings... all to season the box and support. I have been reading about Johns and we have seen two local shows that included his work in the last weeks. I have written a blog piece about him, too ...(artistinanaframe.blogspot.com)
