BRIAN KOKOSKA creates haunting domestic environments in his exhibitions. Remnants of fabricated and found objects, sentimental belongings from deceased family members, altered collectibles and other memorabilia decorate his exhibition space. Pointy nipples and bulging abdomens create disrupted figural compositions in the artist’s gestural paintings of androgynous characters straddling the border of abstraction and figuration. The result is a combination of fiction and heightened expressions from remembered interactions, experienced by Kokoska.
