Terrifying Deep Sea Angler Lamp Made from Recycled Objects

Probably not for the kids room, but I appreciate the effort that went into this wicked assemblage light by Justin La Doux made of bicycle parts, knives, a shovel, and other objects. The piece was entered as part of the 2010 ArtPrize contest. (via my amp goes to 11)




New Mixed Media Assemblages by Kris Kuksi

August 20, 2012

Christopher Jobson


Artist Kris Kuksi is perhaps one of the most frequently submitted artists appearing in Colossal’s in box each month, so it’s with great honor that I finally share his work on this blog for the first time. Kuksi is famous for his Baroque-influenced assemblages that seem to splinter out like sculptural fractals, each component fused to another object or detail even smaller and intricate. Via his artist statement:

Kris Kuksi garners recognition and acclaim for the intricate sculptures that result from his unique and meticulous technique. A process that requires countless hours to assemble, collect, manipulate, cut, and re-shape thousands of individual parts, finally uniting them into an orchestral-like seamless cohesion that defines the historical rise and fall of civilization and envisions the possible future(s) of humanity.

Kuksi currently has work at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York and Mark Moore Gallery in LA, both through the 25th of August, 2012 and you’ll also have pieces at Pulse during Art Basel week in Miami this December. All images courtesy the artist.

I’m really enjoying these miniature assemblages by sculptor J. Shea whose pinball piece, Magical Machine, was just on display here in Chicago at a videogame themed exhibit at OhNo!Doom. Tim Burton would approve. (via super punch)
