Largely influenced by Late Baroque and Rococo, Kris Kuksi (first covered in HF Vol. 19) recently presented a new body of work for his solo show at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York, “Amalgamation.” Where Rococo artists made a fluid and graceful approach to the Baroque, Kuksi’s mixed media assemblages possess a certain darkness. Oftentimes, we find his subjects engulfed in a chaotic, yet ornate collection of “throwaway” objects. The title of his exhibition alludes to the complete confusion and disorderly nature of each piece.
