Artist turns her New York home into a psychedelic retreat

Artist turns her New York home into a psychedelic retreat when American artist kat o’sullivan purchased a run-down 1840s residence in upstate new york, she planned for its total reconstruction into a psychedelic retreat, painted in a spectrum of rainbow hues and large-scale frescoes. Since then, she and partner mason brown have added oddly shaped windows, vibrantly colored exterior paneling and a pink front door to their home, transforming it into ‘calico’. black-painted trim gives the entire scheme a cartoon-like quality, as if torn from the pages of a comic magazine. a hand-painted mural illustrated near the roof draws out the shape of smiling mouth, while two adjacent window-frames serve as the eyes of the architectural face.

Kris kuksi’s Antiquity in the faux at Mark Moore Gallery


 Kris Kuksi’s “Antiquity in the Faux” at Mark Moore Gallery

While Kris Kuksi’s baroque assemblages (first covered in HF Vol. 19) have an ornate aesthetic suited for marble or gilded bronze, his work is composed of carefully-chosen collections of commonplace, throwaway objects. Kuksi assembles dolls, jewelry, model parts and various consumerist debris into monumental dioramas. Within them, his characters are embroiled in a chaotic drama of violence and sex, which Kuksi carefully contains into symmetrical, harmonious compositions that appear deceptively decorative at a first glance. The Kansas-based artist will be showing his new body of work for his solo show, “Antiquity in the Faux,” opening at Mark Moore Gallery in Los Angeles on November 15.
