Box Series Portraits
Since I was talking about art and family portraits, I thought I would share an artist who has taken portraits to another level: Coke Wisdom O’ Neal. My client Paige (who owns Mixed Greens Gallery, which represents Coke Wisdom O’ Neals) has a portrait of her family in a giant plywood box that I have always admired.
"He has done a series of these portraits. The Box, a 22-foot tall wooden box, was originally constructed and installated in Manhattan (2005). Used by O’Neal for his "Box Series" portraits, it was later installed in Queens (2006), and Texas (2008)."
Here’s a video of the Box in Texas:
