Kris Kuksi will be presenting a brand new series of his signature ornate sculptures with the solo show, “Revival,” at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York City tonight - Thursday, November 21st. Kuksi explains the title of the show as “about re-hashing, re-mixing, re-inventing, and re-creating” ones own ideas and overall society. The meticulously assembled, mixed media sculptures portray historical, social and biblical themes and keep the eye entertained, for with closer inspections one will find the surface of the work alive with scenes of horror. Kuksi lives and works in Kansas. You can see more of the work from the show as well a few detail shots below:
Christopher Bennett - House of Sound (2013)
"I spent time in record stores, vintage stereo repair shops, vintage retail shops, and people’s houses photographing and having conversations about why they listen to music the way they do and how it affects their lives. Some have made careers, some a hobby and some want nothing more than to listen, but for all of them, myself included, it is an important part of our lives in some way.
I have shot spaces in Portland, Seattle, New York, and Berlin and I find that these ideals hold true from coast to coast to places afar. The love, passion and obsession for listening is a common thread that runs through all of the people and shops; these connect us all together to the moment we first felt the sound.”
