Friday Inspiration – Kris Kuksi
His art is intricate and delicate yet solid and intense. Looking at the pieces makes me want to see them up close. I want to study them. Ask him questions like “How long does each piece take? Where to you find or make the pieces that you include in each one?” I want to see inside his brain.
In the biography on his website it states: “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. Each sculpture embodies the trademarks of his philosophy and practice, while serving as a testament to the multifaceted nature of perception – From timeless iconic references of Gods and Goddess, to challenging ideas of organized religion and morality, to the struggle to understand, and bend, the limits of mortality. “
There isn’t much more I can say. I think you just need to see for yourself.
