Kris Kuksi has a great new interview out this week with Buzzworthy in which he talks about the origins of his practice, his studio, and the underlying themes in his intricate assemblages. From the feature: "In 1995 I had made my first assemblage and it was a success. I couldn’t take it seriously though, as I was such a gung-ho purest for painting, so it took me until 2004 to have a friend urge me to make another sculpture." Enjoy the full article here.

Last Thursday, May 7, we celebrated the opening receptions for Evan Hecox's Far and Erin M. Riley's Darkness Lies Ahead. With the warm weather here to stay, it almost felt like we were living in one of Hecox's scenes from the Mojave Desert. Over the years Hecox has exhibited with the gallery, the artist's eclectic style and flair for imagination never cease to marvel. Erin M. Riley's handwoven tapestries are even more impressive in situ. The artist recently acquired a two-person floor loom, of which she operates entirely by herself. The work produced for Riley's exhibition is the artist's largest to-date, reaching over eight feet wide. Thank you to all who joined us in celebrating these two wonderful exhibitions. Please enjoy these opening photos! | Photos »
