Kris Kuksi’s work has a timeless quality. Tension, mystery, and drama abound, encouraging the viewer to uncover the layers of narrative. Themes of good versus evil, masculine and feminine, and light versus dark are common in his work.

Kuksi works in Kansas in an old church built in 1897. Mass-produced found objects collected from hobby shops and online sources all over the world fill his studio. These objects become the foundation of his complex mixed media assemblages.

Look closer and you might be able to identify miniature animals, toy soldiers, model railroad figures or toy parts. Kuksi cuts, alters, and glues these found objects together to produce unique elements to work with. The objects are then assembled into a larger unified work of art. The entire piece is then painted to give a worn appearance.
