The world of Kris Kuksi, according to the artist himself is a reflection on "timelessness", however, not just solely on the motionlessness figures, but something more intrinsic, more primal, or as the Kuksi puts it "forced into the stillness of death and eternal sleep". These premises led him to the best possible medium to express these possibilities, 3-D sculptures. A mishmashes of popular culture, from vinyl toy figures, model kits, to furniture parts and mechanical hardware, Kuksi created body of arts which micmic Baroque and Rococo stylings. Yet, it retains a macabre sense of grandeur and frailness of life.
To see some of Kris Kuksi's elaborate 3-D sculptural installations, Joshua Liner Gallery in Chelsea, New York, will be exhibiting "Beast Anthology" this month. A total of 12 works will be on display, each will focus on the theme of morality and conflict that arise from within.
