solo exhibition

December 1st - 31st, 2023

Opening Reception: Friday, December 1st from 5pm - 9pm

Arch Enemy Arts presents YONDER by Alex Kuno, a series of ten awe-inspiring and otherworldly works that document objects, characters, and encounters from the gardenscape of endless unreality. With eerie lighting, earthy palettes, and curving horizons, YONDER exists in a sacred dimension. It is a place of people akin yet totally removed from our own. 

“I’ve heard myself describe [my paintings] as religious artwork with God removed,” Kuno tells AEA. “It may seem strange considering how the work became what it is, but I originally went into this project intending to explore themes of peace and comfort.” 

In this metaphysical realm, Kuno chronicles strange rituals of sympathy, solace, camaraderie, and consolation. His emotional depths allow one to peel one’s own skin to confer with oneself (“Secret Conversation”) or cry in the arms of an older future (“Melters”). Introspection becomes a ceremonial if not social event (“Spring Cleaning”) where inside is out and outside is in, and spiritual lives have a life of their own. 

Alex Kuno lives and works in the Lowertown Arts District in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1999 and has “been teaching [himself] how to be an artist every day ever since.” Arch Enemy Arts is proud to have shown Kuno’s work since 2017, and this is the artist’s second solo feature with the gallery.
