Box of Neptune

Assemblage. Azurite, lapis lazuli and indigo in egg tempera on card; various items. 24x14x9cm.

DateNovember 1st 2020

The first 7 boxes followed the classical planets, but in the spirit of my own Planetary Spheres, where I explored expanding that model to 10, the collection continues. Both the planet’s sea-god namesake and its actual ultramarine colour associate it with the ocean and what it symbolises. Note that the inside of the box is not yet shown here! It’ll only be revealed to the public once it has been purchased and experienced by the owner.

As with all my boxes, the nature and meaning of the contents are not described as it is for the viewer to make their own relationship to the story.


(Further unboxing held back until the box has found a home.)


A penny for your thoughts...
