Marilyn Kuksht

Sculpting is for Kuksht a vital means to blend and express artistic and social statements. Those who incorporate found objects in their work risk merely elevating the mundane, prompting the viewer to trace the origins of the component parts. Kuksht re-employs once-functional objects and industrial detritus in a sort of quintessential recycling, but focuses on creating a new, refined sense of form and grace especially well realized in those works ultimately cast in bronze. The viewer first responds to the art – an unique overall movement, balance and character, sometimes even humor – not to the source of materials.
