Info from Juxtapoz:
“The Princess Express is a travel agency that provides especially slow transport to fragile creatures--like princesses and their teddybear companions,” KuKula states about her next solo show, The Princess Express, coming to Copro Nason Gallery this Saturday, November 8th.I was fortunate enough to meet KuKula at SDCC08 and got to see her sketch in a friends blackbook, and i was amazed at the detail that went into each and every one of her sketches, and she did them fast...uber talented artist here. If you get a chance pop on in and check out this work in person...you will not be disappointed.
“Four years ago I moved to the US, but somehow I still don't feel like I've entirely arrived,” the artist continues. “Physically I'm here of course, but the long journey from one home to another isn't yet done. Crossing the ocean is a continuing emotional slog.
“I read somewhere once that jetlag is the time it takes for your soul to catch up with you when an airplane has taken you unnaturally far unnaturally fast. My soul prefers older means of travel, like sail boats. Unfortunately, it seems to have been becalmed somewhere on the high Atlantic. So this show is about long journeys to uncertain destinations. I approached each painting like it was a page of a travel diary recording the muted hopes, disorientation, or just plain weariness of a lost soul.”
The Princess Express runs November 8 - November 29, 2008. Details at copronason.com.
