My first thought seeing Kris Kuksi sculptures was “cool religo-steampunkery!” My second thought was, “It kinda reminds me of Andrew Jones.” It must be the prevalence of Eastern temple shapes and details and the creation of larger structures by utilizing smaller objects in repetition.
Lo and behold, when I clicked on the news section I saw that he will be exhibiting with Andrew Jones in Toronto this May. Oh Canada, you have the best animation and now you have this. I am officially smitten. (Hmmmm… I have friends in Toronto that I am due to visit…)
