AWSOME Mixed media sculptures of Kris Kuksi
et le mot est faible face à son imagination, des détails et de la technique !
(Born 1973, in Springfield Missouri and growing up in neighboring Kansas)
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
