Artist Kris Kuksi (Vol 19) opened his latest solo exhibition ‘Triumph’last night at NYC’s Joshua Liner Gallery to a packed crowd, all clamoring for acloser look at his intensely detailed sculptures. For his third solo show withthe gallery, Kuksi stunned with several impressively large pieces, including alife-size milk skinned woman atop a long snouted gator, highlighting a departurein scale for his signature tangled cosmos. Furthering his narratives of war andlove, the monochromatic pieces featured a hybrid of hubris, satire and romance.View more images of the new work as well as opening night photos after the jump, here onHi-Fructose.

Following our trips to Art Basel and the NADA art fair, Hi-Fructose paid a visit yesterday to the Scope Art Fair across the water in the Wynwood Arts District. A highlight of the fair was the show of mixed media assemblage by artist Kris Kuksi (HF Vol. 13), who shared Joshua Liner Gallery‘s booth with fellow roster artists Tony Curanaj and Ian Francis. Much as we covered Kuksi’s exhibit at Scope Switzerland a few months back, Hi-Fructose is proud to present an in-depth and detailed look into the few featured Kuksi pieces. Be sure to check back in the next couple days for additional coverage of Liner’s booth and of the rest of the fair.
Since we last saw Kris Kuksi in Hi-Fructose Vol. 13, the mixed media assemblage artist has been showing around the world with an exhibition at Art Basel: Switzerland (covered here) and a smattering of new pieces such as the “Church Tank” (which we also covered here). Hi-Fructose is proud to present a first look at Kuksi’s latest, “A Heroic Abduction”. Drawing upon themes of Roman and Greek mythology, with a steampunk twist, Kuksi never ceases to impress with his highly stylized and hyper detailed sculpture. Get a closer look at this latest piece, and see it in it’s entirety, here on Hi-Fructose.
To follow up on yesterday’s coverage of Meta Gallery‘s “Phantasmagoria” show, Hi-Fructose is proud to show our readers an exclusive first look at Kris Kuksi‘s (HF Vol. 13) newest piece, “Church Tank”. Another mixed media assemblage by the master, “Churchtank Type 8 with Artillery Flak” takes a more architectural approach to Kuksi’s style, incorporating a deep rooted, if not controversial, theme and the steady hand we’ve come to know and love. Check out a few more pictures of Kuksi’s latest after the jump.
