"When it comes to art exhibitions, The Box Gallery thinks outside the box."
“A cultural adventure”
The Box Gallery is a wonderful collection of some of South Florida best artists. Along with finding talented locals, the owner Rolando also goes to great lengths to bring in outside influences that enrich the local culture and spark conversation. Rolando is an incredibly nice guy willing to dive headfirst into any conversation about art and culture. His whole mission seems to be to cultivate an environment where everyone is welcome to have the opportunity to share and enjoy new visions. If you go to one of his many special events or just stop by you are bound to find something of interest. It's well worth the trip!

2nd Year Anniversary Invitational Exhibition.



About the artist:
As an artist, Renda Writer stands firmly behind the central idea expressed in his artist statement, where he says, “My goal as an artist is to make my handwriting into visual art and to shed light on the general idea that handwriting can be seen as art, reminding viewers that the art is in what the words say, how they look, and how they’re written.”  As a visual artist, Renda first started creating in 2010, after several years as a poet.  He started by creating the “Handwritten” brand, which eventually blossomed into a virtual empire of “Handwritten” products.  With his art, Renda likes to emphasize and gravitate toward concepts and themes of brevity, nature, inspiration, the struggle, the hustle, affirmations, and the concept of “She” as a pronoun that will never get old.

About the Artists:

Serge Strosberg and David Mandel are collectively known as the 


STROSBERGMANDEL

CREATIVE DUO





New York artists Serge Strosberg and David Mandel fuse the visual language of  Flemish and German portraiture with fantasy jewelry and fabric design.  Both artists present a very contemporary and unlikely mixture of works heavily inspired by their personal histories characterized by decadence and eccentricity of the NYC club era, particularly the many meme's of London club personality Leigh Bowery and Imperial Court drag adding an exuberant and human touch to the contemporary art scene. 



These contemporary alchemists transform “lead into gold”. 



StrosbergMandel combine oil/enamel painting with an assemblage of carefully chosen materials and multi-layered techniques using crystals, feathers, metal and luxe fabrics.

This collaboration evokes the dichotomy of the Flemish Van Eyck brothers or of German portraitist Holbein, where the representation of beauty and wealth hide a dark spiritual reality and fragility of life. The ebb & flow in the work, physically kinetic or implied, is symbolic of life – in the guise of Memento Mori.

Independent curator and critic and former director of the Neuberger Museum Dominique Nahas recently found affinities with the intensity and immediacy of the psychical connection which StrosbergMandel’s portraits seem to convey with the renowned Faiyum mummy panel portraits of the 
Egyptian Hellenistic period.

"The work of Diane Arrieta is fueled by a lifetime kinship for animals, environmental stewardship and a love of animated movies. The art work investigates environmental and social concerns through a whimsical use of color and characters. It is rooted in the style and philosophies of animation and comic book genres.

The work is a type of parody for real life and activates childhood imagination and play. Through the use of cultural icons, symbols and references, the artist gives the viewer a sense of nostalgia. The work elicits compassion for the animal subjects and offers a story for exploration [without confrontation]. The message of the work is important, but not necessarily the end result for every viewer. Albert Einstein said "Imagination is more important than knowledge”. If the art work ignites memories, self-reflection or empathy for the subject, that is often more important than the facts. The artist’s thesis research shows that this encourages self-investigation into the subject presented [which encourages a deeper understanding].

Arrieta is offering a moment of fantasia, while simultaneously offering environmental/social awareness
[if you want it]."

ABOUT THE ARTIST​

Diane Arrieta (USA-Czech/German/Native American) was raised in Western Pennsylvania and currently resides in South Florida. She holds a BFA in ceramic sculpture  (Florida Atlantic University, FL) and an MSc in Wildlife Health (University of Edinburgh’s School of Medicine and Veterinarian Medicine, U.K.).

Arrieta employs an insouciant use of a stripped down schematic characteristic of 21st century cartoons and animation. This schematic, together with the application to her paintings’ surfaces of ambiguous symbolic phrases and shapes (e.g., repetitive circles or triangles) invite closer attention, serving to intensify the curiosity of the viewer regarding the density of meaning implied in the term syncretism. Her female figures in much of the work recall imagery depicting the Disney version of Snow White (and her physical attributes “as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as ebony wood.”) Snow White iconography is firmly imprinted on popular consciousness worldwide as the first Disney leading lady, surrounded by singing and dancing animals. Arrieta applies the same approach, giving the viewer a common starting place to interact with the work. Despite its avowed purpose [to inform and teach about global environmental issues], the overall effect is in no way directly didactic. 

The works of Diane Arrieta have been exhibited in several museums, such as the Cornell Museum of American Art & Culture, The NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, The Boca Raton Museum and the Museum Of Fine Art Tallahassee. She has had several solo exhibitions, including the Art & Cultural Center Hollywood and Palm Beach State College. Her work is shown throughout the United States and the United Kingdom. Her work is in both private and public collections, including the Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz (Girl’s Club) Collection.
