J'ai découvert le travail de Kris Kuksi lors de la magnifique exposition Hey ! Modern art & Pop culture I organisée par la Halle Saint Pierre à Paris. Je fus aussitôt subjuguée par ces sculptures méticuleuses faites de mille (voir plus) petites pièces récupérées. Ces multiples éléments issus de la société de consommation et abandonnés deviennent grâce à l'auteur de fameuses scènes baroques pleines de sens. Du grand Art à voir et revoir ! On peut retrouver dans le livre de belles photos des œuvres ainsi que des détails mais il reste en anglais... J'espère qu'un éditeur pourra le traduire très prochainement en français...

his body of work is marvelous and the book does a good job going through many pieces with detailed close ups. There are a few "behind the scens" shots where one can see the artist's process.

Mesmerizing 17 février 2011
Par Parka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Divination and Delusion is a mesmerizing book.

There are some pretty good art books in 2010 but this probably tops them all.

Kris Kuksi's intricate assemblages are surreal. I was fortunate to see one of them on display. Seeing them is a surreal experience itself.

Thanks to beinArt Publishing, now we have a book that all can enjoy. It's a 140-page hardcover without any dust jacket. The print quality is very good. It collects not just the assemblages but some paintings as well.

The photos of the assemblages are printed one per page, sometimes across two pages. The overview photos are very sharp and there are so much detail that I wish it was a larger book. There are closeups on selected areas but they aren't quite as sharp and not all areas are in focus because of the lens blur.

Kris Kuksi is the ultimate Rococo master. His assemblages are highly ornamental and florid. His inspiration comes from mythology, religion and events from our time, the war, corruption, death and degeneration. That's the common theme you'll see throughout.

The works are exquisite and reminds me of sculptures from Renaissance masters, except with a twist. For example, the Churchtank is his way of highlighting contradictions in religion - the cannon pointing out from the entrance is brilliant. Many pieces feature new and old military icons mixed with just about everything. You have a rooster with a Roman soldier's head, or a soldier with a tank's head, or the god Mars holding a machine gun.

This is a highly recommended awe-inspiring book. Every assemblage inside is a page-pausing moment.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

pictures too smal 24 mars 2011
Par Evzenie Reitmayerova - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
well, these sculptures are fantastic and imaginative, yes, but... the book is too small so you miss most of the details. 14 or 15 inches would help.
the pictures arent very detailed and even the close-ups are out of focus. seems like a bad camera and lenses were chosen, an expensive macro lens could have saved all the details. there are millions of details, you can feel them but you cant see them. use a better camera or a better photographer next time, please.

i bought this book because i read a good review (and saw a video) by Parka. this guy gets his share of money when you buy stuff by clicking amazon link at his blog pages. that explains why he basically writes only positive reviews.

as much as i like the authors work i am really disappointed with the book, waste of money.

nice photos of kris kuksi works as a whole composition, but hard to see the details 1 mai 2011
Par Hanjie - Publié sur Amazon.com

Have to agree that the works of kris kuksi are amazing. His works have a lot of details. While most of the photos in the book encompass the whole composition of his work, the details cannot be clearly seen. There are some photos of close up but many have lens blurring. I believe it should be intentional though, an aesthetic choice by the author of this book, to focus on only an specific area, but not necessary the best choice to show the details.

Wow! 5 mars 2011
Par Fangs - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is an art book unlike any other. The artist Kris Kuksi is a found item artist who creates fantastic imaginative worlds that entrance and seduce. This book contains photos that both show the details of his pieces as well as photos that show their overall scope. Looking at Kuksi's work is almost a spiritual experience. The reader cannot help but fall into these works and return changed. Buy this book for yourself and you will return to buy it for someone else becasue you won't want to lend your copy.

Fantastic Work 29 mars 2011
Par Jeff Coatney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Kris Kuksi speaks a language all his own. With obvious resonating influences from Hieronymus Bosch, Terry Gilliam, Hinduism, Friedrich Krupp and Industrial Light and Magic, Kuksi delivers allegorical pageants that seem hewn in iron and marble, steel and stone. They are works of industrial biology and biological industrial complexes of the psyche. These assemblages of psychological shipyards, ids and egos, speak more eloquently of the age we live in than any work of art in recent memory. They exist like warnings from the past, while commenting on our present technological context from a perspective that is entirely futuristic. These assemblies of dessicated hulks seem to occupy a space in the afterlife- as if they are judgements on our world, our present circumstance, in a pile of offenses and desires made physical and bound together in a frozen symmetry. To move around them in space is a constant discovery of meaning and the invention of relationships that never allow the parts to connect fully with the whole. The structures are totemic and narrative and their monochrome surfaces, alive with defects and implied patina, are sometimes physically small yet are almost always epic in scale. I imagine them as a twisted highway to a kind of desolate wasteland where nature finally overtakes commerce and nobility-- purgatory. Great themes emerge from the simple placement of iconography. Wonderfully inventive spaces nestle deep inside the grottoes and tombs depicted in the ghostly architecture. If the scale of these works were to overwhelm the viewer, it could be maddening. The work confronts, warns and finally acts as monument to the civilized, yet wholly corrupt symbols that comprise it. The book only hints at this magic and while it offers a glimpse of process, it also keeps the mystery intact. To visit this world in two dimensions is less-than. The wonders unfold when you can view the works in motion, seeing the balance of forms change and morph into savage skeletal shapes. The book gives you what the eye often cannot: a macro view and a POV that can expand in your mind's eye- its the architecture of heaven and hell with humanity's flaws locked within the cosmic machine. I very much enjoyed the lot of it.
