About this Art
The framing option for this RUN includes an Ornate Gold Wood frame with UV-Glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.
"This piece was created in 2009 with oil on board. It was a part of my first solo show with Corey Helford Gallery Immortal Artifact. The theme was my personal relationship with art and how I believe that art is the closest form of immortality.
I was trying to create the emotion that can come from listening music that take you away from the physical world. I think everything in this piece is floating in nowhere, even the ground.
Honestly, I just really like old gramophones and how they were so lavishly designed like to honor the record you put on it. Today we don’t have things have beautiful tech items because they are always get better and we always need to buy new ones." - Kukula
After receiving her degree in illustration from Vital-Shenkar in 2003, Kukula moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. Since then she has moved to Philadelphia where she is currently based. She has worked with galleries such as CoproNason, Corey Helford, Thinkspace, Shooting Gallery and Roq La Rue.
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Kukula and 1xRUN.
Kukula was born in a relatively isolated village about an hour north of Tel Aviv. Her few neighbors were mostly retirees, many of them Holocaust survivors. Her childhood imagination was nourished by equal parts princess fantasies and World War II horror stories. Thus the attempt to reconcile real life horror with fantasy life sweetness emerges as a central theme in her work.
After receiving her degree in illustration in 2003 from Vital-Shenkar, Kukula moved to the U.S., where she lives now.
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 traditional 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.
