The almighty triumvirate of Travis Louie (c.f. image above), Kris Kuksi (c.f. image below) and Mercedes Helnwein (huh?! o_O) have taken over the Shooting Gallery yesterday night for an amazing group show that will be on view until the end of October.

Even though I'm a great admirer of Herrn Helnwein's daughter's work, I can't really see how it will blend in with Louie's & Kuksi's incredibly detailed, profound works, but maybe the answer lies in the monochromaticity of her works.

I won't even begin to describe how much I envy you S.F. folks for the chance to get face to face with a skeletal Kuksi sculpture, but then again, we have the Giger Museum in Helvetistan and I guess you just can't have your facehugger and eat it.
