Coveney, John – Love Unboxed 2021
Story of the Box
This is John Coveney’s sixth entry in The Box Show, the fifth in a series with a word or letters as the motif.
The first, “Love Letters – a maquette” explored the idea of that word not being able to fit in a box., The next year, 2018, the letters spelled more topically “VOTE”, then to be followed by “WTF”.
Last year’s “think” (with all its letters outside the box) graced the virtual gallery walls.
This year Robert Indiana’s iconic four letter design is more obviously an inspiration, but with the artist’s own take on the concept.
John Coveney is a multimedia artist- a sculptor, bricoleur, impresario, and social alchemist, to name a few identities. A flaneur, trans-gressive in his dress up, he has for a long time enjoyed being different.
Art is a process of exploration, a willingness to see things differently than you first perceived.

NOTE: This sculpture works equally well as a wall hanging. The stand makes it easier to set up for display and transportation.
