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.

Once again, AJ Fosik's work just looks stunning and some of the most original fine art sculptures made today. Against the Infinite marks the third solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery for the Portland, Oregon based artist, and as the gallery notes, the new work explores themes of "mortality and invention with imagery such as skulls, exposed ribcages, tools and weaponry including sickles, swords, hammers and stakes."

Using locally sourced lumber grown in Oregon, AJ Fosik creates his signature and ever evolving sculptural work. The wonderful figures and anthropomorphized fantastical creatures are built using a complex process involving arranging hundreds of pieces of individually cut and varnished woods which are then painted vibrant colors and patterns.
