The frigid gusting wind on Manhattan’s west side did nothing to discourage an art-hungry crowd from attending Saturday evening’s Kris Kuksi and Pat Rocha openings at Joshua Liner Gallery. As mentioned in our preview, Kuksi’s work really needs to been seen in person to be believed. Each piece is obsessively constructed of hundreds upon hundreds of individual parts to form a frightening yet beautiful world of men and monsters. And with some works measuring over 10 feet in length, one could spend hours and hours […]

Opening shows tomorrow at Joshua Liner Gallery are two artists whose work couldn’t be more different, yet are interesting in their own way. In Gallery I, Kris Kuksi’s Imminent Utopia showcases his intricate mixed-media assemblages made from “model kits, injection-molded toy soldiers and animals, plastic skulls, knick-knack figurines, and mechanical parts.” The size and detail of some of these works have to be seen in person to be believed – AM will be bringing you opening pics, which should give you more of an idea […]
In our recent review of Faile’s extraordinary show “Lost in Glimmering Shadow’s,” we briefly touched on the new “Prayer Wheels” and “Circular Palettes”Â which were premiered in the UK. AM now brings you an closer look at these two beautiful hand produced mediums! Faile has really taken urban medium to another level by infusing their “spin” on an age old spiritual instrument. True to the original spiritual Prayer Wheels found in Asia, the detailed graphic carvings on the PrayerÂ Wheels are designed to spin around and be […]
Artist and musician Liz McGrath is opening a show tonight in Spain called “Tears of the Crocodile.”Â Her grotesque yet beautiful sculptures have always been eye-catching and strangely fascinating.Â Her show at Iguapop will feature many detailed works that must be looked at closely to fully appreciate their intricacies.Â Examples of this after the jump.
Travis Louie & Kris Kuksi’s show opened up last Saturday in San Fransciso at the Shooting Gallery (previously previewed). If you have ever observed people looking at their works in person, you will notice that the viewer gets closer and closer to the artwork as they try and get a better look at the details. This is a testament to all the time and hard work put into these pieces.Â Â More photos after the jump.
Brendan Monroe’s show “Dwindle to a Tiptoe” (previously previewed) with Evah Fan just opened last Thursday in Paris. It seems that nowadays, more and more American artists that we are familiar with are showing internationally. Unfortunately, that makes it hard for the stateside AM crew to see the work in person, but Adeline from Galerie L.J. Beaubourg was nice enough forward some pics (right before opening we presume) for us to share with you all. As you can see, Brendan and Evah were enjoying themselves […]
One of our favorite artists, Travis Louie, is opening a three-person show tonight at the Shooting Gallery. Louie’s technique must be quite complicated as he is able to paint photorealistic images of his imaginary creatures. He will be sharing some of his “secrets” in a future feature with us, but in the meantime you can enjoy his paintings from this show after the jump. Sculptor extraordinaire Kris Kuksi will be one of the other artists exhibiting along with Louie. The intricacy of his work is […]
For those so inclined, a KAWS bronze sculpture (self portrait) will be available at his upcoming show at Gering & Lopez. Sized at 11 x 6 1/4 x 9 1/2 inches and produced as an edition of 33, every one will be painted a unique color and cost 25K. These heads look like the same basic sculpt that was used for his Bounty Hunter Skull Kun figures seen below. via highsnobiety.
