"I made these pieces around the same time for 2 different group shows. They were both inspired by 19th century portraits, when the hair style took an important part in showing the wealth in paintings of young women. Sicille was inspired by Dolce & Gabana previous collection. the collection is very catholic, though I’m Jewish, I’m very much inspired by the catholic church (for many reasons we won’t get into now.) I don’t often use black combined with red in such a graphic way, but I love how they used in their designs. Blue Jane was inspired by an English made china bone tea cup I saw in one of my tea cups collection books." - Kukula


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
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.
