Opening Night: Immortal Artifacts by Kukula

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.

Make sure to read our recent Back Talk interview with Kukula in anticipation of this show HERE.
