Opening Night: Immortal Artifacts by KukulaJuxtapoz // Thursday, 31 Dec 2009
This new series continues Kukula’s trend of depicting young females in deceptively complex situations. Serving as allegorical narratives, Kukula recently told us, “My figures are not necessarily human.” Whatever her figures may represent for the artist and viewer, they are candy to the eye.
A cast of top-notch artists and fans came out to celebrate the unveiling of Immortal Artifacts at Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery.
