Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present Revival, an exhibition of mixed-media assemblage sculptures by Kansas-based artist Kris Kuksi. This will be Kuksi’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery with works ranging medium-in-size to some over five feet-tall and five feet-wide.
When encountering Kuksi’s work from a distance, these ornate sculptures resemble something of the Belle Époque—or certainly representative of that period’s ethos. A cursory glance gives the impression of decorative frills and ornamental beauty. At times, the central figure appears serene, omnipresent. However, upon closer inspection, the sculptures reveal a dark underbelly. Rage, conflict, tragedy, and mournfulness are prevalent in the dialogue among the smaller, less dominant figures.
The exhibit runs from November 21st through January 18th 2014, with an opening reception Thursday, November 21st from 6 - 8 PM.
