The gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal, because any moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.
Homer, Iliad. (via jaded-mandarin)

Kris Kuksi.

Last time we saw a large body of work from Kris Kuksi, he was giving his fans in Los Angeles a rare close look at his intricate mixed media assemblages (covered). This time around, he will be returning to the Joshua Liner Gallery for an exhibition entitled Revival tonight (November 21st), his fourth solo with the Chelsea showspace (see2009 & 2012). Ranging from medium sized to over five feet tall and wide, these ornate sculptures filled with assorted god-like figures, religious iconography, war machines, and dark elements must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Kuksi explains – “Ancient Rome is our history teacher and our ghost for the future. Revival is about re-hashing, re-mixing, re-inventing, and re-creating.”
