Revival by Kris Kuksi

Ornate Mixed Media Assemblages by Kris Kuksi sculpture assemblage Neo-Hellenism, 2013. Mixed media assemblage. 37″ x 35″ x 11″

Revival is Kuksi’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery with works ranging medium-in-size to some over five feet-tall and five feet-wide, an exhibition of mixed-media assemblage sculptures.
Kansas-based artist Kris Kuksi said “Ancient Rome is our history teacher and our ghost for the future. Revivalis about re-hashing, re-mixing, re-inventing, and re-creating.” The artist is inspired by society, history, and human psychology.
Film Director Guillermo del Toro has critical eye for the artist’s work:
“A postindustrial Rococo master, Kris Kuksi obsessively arranges characters and architecture 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.”
