Born March 2, 1973, in Springfield Missouri and growing up in neighboring Kansas, Kris spent his youth in rural seclusion and isolation along with a blue-collar, working mother, two much-older brothers and an absent father.

@Amigo,
any more information? His work reqlly draws you in to keep finding something new. ANy iodea of the medium or the sizes of these pieces?

HE must have been influenced by works of the Gupta period of India.

No, the medium I think are "found objects" or model pieces but the comentary is obvious.

@farmerman,
The referred website indicates Kris' art is derived using the following methods:

Drawing (graphite on clayboard, graphite on paper, white charcoal (huh?), acrylic and ink on board

Painting (acrylic on board and with ink on board, acrylic on gessoboard, acrylic on canvas, and oil )

and Sculpture (mixed media assemblage 0-0 assuming these are found objects),


When you click or mouse over the paintings, drawings and sculpture, you'll see the sizes listed.

If you click on the works, you get them much bigger, and if you click on the arrows, you get details.

You also get dimensions, and a summary of media...but it generally just says "mixed."

@Amigo,
Hello Community,

Kris Kuksi obsessively arranges characters and architecture in asymmetric compositions with an exquisite sense of drama. Instead of stones and shells he uses screaming plastic soldiers, miniature engine blocks, towering spires and assorted debris to form his landscapes. The political, spiritual and material conflict within these shrines is enacted under the calm gaze of remote deities and august statuary. Kuksi manages to evoke, at once, a sanctum and a mausoleum for our suffocated spirit.

Best Regards,
Matin John
