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.
