That was pretty much my dumbfounded reaction to seeing Kuksi’s work in-person for the 1st time. As I lay on the floor to shoot pics of the scenes going on underneath this sculpture the realization washes over me that trying to consume the sheer level of detail in these intricate mini mythological universes he creates in one viewing might cause tiny explosions in your brain.
Kuksi is an architect of worlds imagined, where these modern societies of plastic going on’s take on the turbulent fault of violence and the chaos of society at hand within its structure. And you can see them now at his current solo exhibit happening at theJoshua Liner Gallery/540 W. 28th Street/New York, NY
*Sculpture seen at Joshua Liner Gallery booth / Miami Project Art Fair 2013
Obsidian, one of the most widely distributed and traded materials in Mesoamerica had a handful of uses such as being shapes into Arrowheads (Punta de flèche). It’s ability to be heavily polished resulted in it commonly being used as a mirror and many believed it to open portals. Pinche cool right?! Here an anonymous woman peers into the past.
Thanks to Hermes @locomottor for lining up this wall and loving obsidian in his eye. (at Telmex)
