Kris Kuksi

December 18, 2010 § 1 Comment

“A post-industrial Rococo master, Kris Kuksi obsessively arranges characters and architecture in asymmetric compositions with an exquisite sense of drama. Instead of stones and shells he uses screaming plastic soldiers, miniature engine blocks, towering spires and assorted debris to form his landscapes.

The political, spiritual and material conflict within these shrines is enacted under the calm gaze of remote deities and august statuary. Kuksi manages to evoke, at once, a sanctum and a mausoleum for our suffocated spirit.”

~ Guillermo del Toro

§ One Response to Kris Kuksi

  • I am still tabulating the debt I owe to you for exposing my artist brain and accessory eyes to Kris Kuksi’s art. I feel awakened like the first finger of a burgeoning ecstasy. Already one large charcoal drawing has developed, and I am currently denying food, sleep, and comfort so that I may work like a hermit in the cabin of my mind, producing bold new works. It all started because you exposed me to Mr. Kuksi.
