Kukulaland

Erotica // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Kukula's paintings center on feminine, doll-like figures, often surrounded by objects with sometimes clear, sometimes obscure symbolic meaning. The work registers the influences of both classical European art forms and contemporary pop culture. In her figures' poses Kukula recalls classical portraiture, yet the style is manifestly modern and pop-influenced. Kukula's compositions thereby disclose her personal struggles as mediated by a rich multi-cultural heritage.
