Kris Kuksi

One of the most striking features of Kuksi’s work is how vastly intricate each of his sculptures are, often exploring grand themes of religion or politics, mixing these with Baroque and modern elements. Created from a multitude of figures and pieces, Kuksi will spend many hours patiently creating each sculpture. His meticulous process involves spending time collecting each individual plastic figurine before cutting and manipulating each piece in order to bring them together within his final sculptures. The results are breathtaking. Each sculpture beckons the viewer to become lost in the mass of amalgamated scenes being played out before their eyes, making Kuksi’s unique creations a trademark style that has enraptured the world.

On closer inspection it’s clear there is more to the scenes Kuksi puts together. With a larger focal point such as the ancient gods and goddesses within shrine-like surroundings, the viewer is first hit with an initial reaction to the scenes they portray. Often, the darker undertones creep out within his tiny figurines – the guns they hold take the spotlight, the chains rise to become the focus. Kuksi’s shares his view of the world, and we are invited in. Kuksi’s biography reads:

In personal reflection, Kris feels that in the world today much on mankind is oftentimes frivolous and fragile, being driven primarily by greed and materialisation. He hopes that his art exposes the fallacies of Man, unveiling a new level of awareness to the viewer.

Anna May Wong was a native Los Angeleno and the first Chinese-American movie star. She landed her first film at 17 years old in the silent The Toll of the Sea and later appeared opposite Marlene Dietrich in Shanghai Express

Though she was a talented actress, she struggled to avoid being typecast. What’s worse, she occasionally was passed over for Asian roles when producers hired Europeans instead of her. 

In 1951 Wong became the first Asian lead in a U.S. television show when she starred in “The Gallery of Madame Liu-Tsong”.

IT’S THEM AS BABIES

A lot of people are surprised to learn that back in 1800, 90 percent of American teachers were actually male. Today we know that actually 76 percent of [them are] female, so how did this huge flip happen?

The answer is that as school reformers began to realize in the 1820s that schooling should be compulsory — that parents should be forced to send their kids to school, and public education should be universal — they had to come up with a way to do this basically in an affordable manner, because raising taxes was just about as unpopular back then as it is now. So what we see is this alliance between politicians and education reformers in the early 19th century to redefine teaching as a female profession.

They do this in a couple ways: First, they argue that women are more moral in a Christian sense than men. They depict men as alcoholic, intemperate, lash-wielding, horrible teachers who are abusive to children. They make this argument that women can do a better job because they’re more naturally suited to spend time with kids, on a biological level. Then they are also quite explicit about the fact that [they] can pay women about 50 percent as much — and this is going to be a great thing for the taxpayer.
