Kukula presents The Princess Express


THE PRINCESS EXPRESS
Paintings by Kukula

ABOUT THE PRINCESS EXPRESS:
The Princess Express is a travel agency that provides especially slow transport to fragile creatures--like princesses and their teddybear
companions. Four years ago I moved to the US, but somehow I still don't feel like I've entirely arrived. 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.
