Red 1980s Lacquered Box by Hollis Fingold, Signed USA

Red 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: 6.75".

The glossy red body of this box has a vibrant energy, patterned with striking black rectangles and hand-drawn white spirals. The interior reveals a deep space, scattered with tiny stars formed from splatters of paint. Additionally, the interior red fabric padding mirrors the exterior pattern with the same hand-drawn black and white design.

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.
