About David Pounds

My years as a professional graphic designer have giving me a high degree of proficiency with the Adobe Software programs Photoshop and Illustrator. About six years ago I realized I was doing all of my creative work on the computer. I had learned the basics of traditional copper foil stained glass making back in college, so I decided to revisit the medium to allow me to once again bring a more tactile element to my image making processes.
I wanted to explore themes that were not traditionally seen in stained glass, but I found that the time-honored working methods I had learned in college did not allow me the creative freedom I desired. A period of intense research and experimentation led me to develop a process whereby I could use my software skills to render line art with a great amount of control, then use a screen printing process to transfer the imagery onto the surface of the stained glass. I used a specially prepared mixture of powdered glass suspended in a thick binding medium as the printing “ink”. Once the ink was applied to the glass, each piece was fired in a kiln at 1,250 degrees to fuse the glass powder to the stained glass. To my knowledge, the working methods I developed and combined with existing techniques are unique to me.
My subject matter for this piece was inspired by 1950’s science fiction book cover illustrations. I thought it would be appropriate to use some very intense colors, but I wasn’t finding glass from my usual sources that matched my vision. To solve this problem, I stacked three pieces of slightly different color glass and fused them into one much thicker piece of glass. Not only did this give me the custom colors I wanted, it also added an interesting element of dimensionality to the piece.

Daniel Weinstein ousted by Delray Arts Garage lands on his feet at The Box Gallery!


Daniel Weinstein's "Garbage" was a bit of a problem for Delray's Art Garage so they literally dumped him.  It seems that his musing for his upcoming exhibition in New York's Contra Gallery this fall included "being one with his subject"; in this case "being one" with a pile of trash strewn about. 
"It wasn't just that," says Daniel, " it was a lot of little things. The whole garbage thing...they just didn't get it. It seems that was the straw!"
Seeking a new home Daniel Weinstein landed at The Box Gallery where he  will be showing his mural size works as part of gallery's most selective and coveted exhibition, the annual anniversary invitational exhibition.

Daniel Weinstein’s work is expressionistic and raw, built on the foundation that painting is, at its most basic element, an ancient form of human communication with a subconscious language of its own. Many of his paintings seek to examine the emotional elements of facial recognition in another, vis a vis loss of self and ostracism. The artist through image creates a dialect that can be visually understood, interpreted and internalized both consciously and subconsciously by the viewer.

Yury Darashkevich is quite possibly one of the best living painters. Yury’s perspicacious observations of nature allows for his masterfully rendered landscapes. Darashkevich redefines our world awash with ethereal beauty allowing the viewer to contemplate the majestic scene with nothing less than reverent and rapt contemplation.

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.”  


Diane Arrieta’s use of cultural icons, symbols and references, gives the viewer a sense of nostalgia. The work elicits compassion for the animal subjects and offers a story for exploration [without confrontation]. While the message of the work is important, but not necessarily the end result for every viewer. Diane is one of few artists that has successfully integrated concerns for the environment into her artworks without compromise of aesthetic value, a compromise that is too often the case; where content and context fail to meet.

StrosbergMandel The creative union of Serge Strosberg and David Mandel. The artists are from Palm Beach and New York respectively. The duo singularly and coupled are enigmatic personalities who’s work is equally sibylline infusing conversations of “fluidity” and embracing “otherness”.  Giving new life to to many of our past icons while fusing 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. 

Giannina Copianno Dwin’s work is conceptual, the message is that we are not permanent permeates every last grain of her installations. Dwin says, “Life is fragile. As a mother and a woman these are the

"The Best Gallery in Palm Beach!"-South Florida Gay News


"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!

About the artist:

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.
