This blog was original posted back in December but due to an illness the conversation with Kris was rescheduled to today. Thank you.   bb

I’m not going to write much here today—I’m going to let Kris Kuksi’s work do most of the “talking”.

phpThumb_generated_thumbnailjpgHere’s the quotation that is at the top of Kris’s biographical information at his website…I think it speaks volumes:

“ALL OF US MIGHT WISH AT TIMES THAT WE LIVED IN A MORE TRANQUIL WORLD, BUT WE DON’T. AND IF OUR TIMES ARE DIFFICULT AND PERPLEXING, SO ARE THEY CHALLENGING AND FILLED WITH OPPORTUNITY.”
~ Robert Francis Kennedy

Below are two short quotes from the bio:

Kris Kuksi garners recognition and acclaim for the intricate sculptures that result from ehc2mehis unique and meticulous technique. A process that requires countless hours to assemble, collect, manipulate, cut, and re-shape thousands of individual parts, finally uniting them into an orchestral-like seamless cohesion that defines the historical rise and fall of civilization and envisions the possible future(s) of humanity.
