A Conversation with Kris Kuksi, Sculptor, Painter, Artist Extraordinaire; January 2, 2014
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”.
“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 his 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.
In personal reflection, Kris feels that in the world today much of mankind is oftentimes frivolous and fragile, being driven primarily by greed and materialism. He hopes that his art exposes the fallacies of Man, unveiling a new level of awareness to the viewer.
