Kris Kuksi

Kris Kuksi creates vivid, detailed media assemblages from sculptures and old toys, all painted to look like part of a single statue. Some of his work is dark and even offensive, but his pieces always make a statement (like the “Bank Tank” pictured below), and there are more and more shocking statements about society, philosophy, religion, and politics the deeper one looks into each highly detailed sculpture. This biography about his work is a magnificent discussion of how truly quality art becomes profound and timeless by tapping into the depths of the human mind, how it both utilizes and invents a unique language of iconography. I was genuinely moved, especially by the first paragraph.
