Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Kris Kuksi's sculptures, rendered in immaculate detail, evoke a grandeur reminiscent of the Baroque era. Kuksi successfully merges this sumptuous echo of the past with a satirical and critical commentary of our modern industrial world. These finely crafted sculptures employ images of Gods and Goddesses from past and present mythologies and examine religious belief and iconography. Despite the frequent portrayal of corruption, violence, chaos and degeneration, the works in this book challenge aspects of our beliefs.

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.

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.)
4.0 étoiles sur 5 THAT ARE AT ONCE BOTH BEAUTIFUL AND BIZARRE 19 décembre 2014

A VERY UNUSUAL AND INTERESTING ARTIST EMPLOYING ASSEMBLAGE TECHNIQUES TO CREATE 'TABLEAUS' IF YOU WILL, THAT ARE AT ONCE BOTH BEAUTIFUL AND BIZARRE, A COMBINATION I HAPPEN TO ENJOY GREATLY. THE WORK IS SLIGHTLY REMINISCENT OF SOME OF DAVID BEST'S WORK (NOT HIS AUTOMOBILE SCULPTURES!).

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE KUKSI'S WORKSHOP…IT MUST BE A TREASURE TROVE OF ODD BITS AND PIECES.
MUCH OF THE WORK LOOKS LIKE A MELDING OF CLASSICAL ART AND FUTURISTIC TECHNOLOGY; A HYBRID OF TEMPLES AND SPACE SHIPS.

I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED WITH MY PURCHASE.

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.

The sheer quantity and detail of all of Kris Kuksi's assmeblages are simply incredible. I was worried when a reviewer mentioned that some of the photos are blurry, and some are, but for the most part they read well and have very nice close up shots of the intricate detail put into them. I bought this as a "coffee table book" conversaation piece but am completely enamored with it.Its much thicker than I thought (140 pgs) and dont worry there is a lot to look at. A great display of work from a very talented artist. Would definitely reccomend as I havent seen any art quite like it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 nice photos of kris kuksi works as a whole composition, but hard to see the details 1 mai 2011

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.
