Kuhl and Leyton are Brad Kuhl and Monique Leyton, two graduates from Miami who began collaborating while studying at Cornell University, Ithaca. Their fine art practice deals predominantly with illuminating the darker side of contemporary culture, creating pieces that act as a social commentary and a critique of capitalism. In this series, Elite Deviance, the pair explore the fraudulent crimes of the United States’ super-rich, creating a day-glo visual indictment of their extraordinary crimes.
Impressively these Martha Stewarts and Bernie Madoffs have been rendered in an unusual set of materials; Kuhl and Leyton favour acrylic and bookbinding tape over paint and canvas. The results hang together like vast synthetic tapestries tied together with a narrative as bloody as the Bayeux. Kuhl!
