Opening: AJ Fosik "Against The Infinite" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 27, 2013
This weekend we had the pleasure of attending the opening reception of AJ Fosik at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Against the Infinite, is the title of his impressive new series of works in this, his third solo show with the gallery. With only plywood and paint, Fosik creates totemic and three-dimensional pieces that seem like trying to get out of their reality to immediately enter another one. Their conflict lies right in between their physical and symbolic self... where they realize their mortality.
