This Friday, November 15th, Mark Moore Gallery will present Antiquity in the Faux, a sophomore solo exhibition of mixed-media assemblage works by artist Kris Kuksi. Oftentimes appearing as unorthodox altarpieces, Kuksi's sculptural wall works have been heralded for their superabundance of detail and narrative – as several theatrical microcosms may converge to produce one sensory fable. Teeming with struggle, conflict, faith, sexuality, and power, his works afford the viewer a ringside seat for allegorical spectacle as the spheres of fantasy and reality collide.

Born March 2, 1973, in Springfield Missouri and growing up in neighboring Kansas, Kris spent his youth in rural seclusion and isolation along with a blue-collar, working mother, two significantly older brothers, and an absent father.

We are enjoying Kris Kuksi's latest series of Churchtanks. Kuksi is an American artist whose work has been shown at over 100 exhibitions worldwide including Art Basel, Pulse, and Scope. He has said that through his art he hopes to expose his audience to the awareness of the fallacies of man. "...much of mankind in the World today is elastic and fragile being driven primarily by greed and materialism."
