1980s Lacquered Box by Hollis Fingold, Checkerboard & Neon Pink, Signed USA

Sold out
Lacquered box handmade in the 1980s by Hollis Fingold at Radar Design in Denver, Colorado. Airbrushed paint on wood. Signed. Depth: 4.5", Width: 4.5", Height: 6.5".

The body of the box has an airbrushed black and white checkerboard pattern, reminiscent of the iconic and bold design aesthetics of the radical 1980s. This motif is paired with vibrant neon pink accents on the lid and feet.

The interior padding's fabric continues the theme with an airbrushed checkerboard pattern in black and purple, accentuated by light pink squiggles that seem to float above it. Notably, the lid has a distinctive half sphere with hand-drawn clock hands. 

Shaped like alien pets, Hollis Fingold's boxes appear to hover on their four pointy legs, with lid handles resembling punk hairdos. They are sensuous yet dangerous creatures that one must adore to tame and open.
