Tansu presents Paper Planes by Kevin Box.  At Tansu, 321-B West 19th Street. Bronze sculptures that celebrate the unfolding of paper, consciousness, and the spiritual planes. Box marries paper and metal to create bronze sculptures with origami influences for a contemporary fusion of both mediums. Included in the Tansu exhibition will be a signature piece ‘Crane Unfolding’, an 8-foot tall sculpture of an origami crane unfolding into a star. “This crane reveals the meaning of life as it unfolds into a star,” says Box. “It symbolizes the complex and intelligent design just below the surface of everything seen in creation. It sums up most of my work”. Call 713-880-5100 for more details.
