Against the Infinite
Portland, Oregon-based artist AJ Fosik creates amazing wooden sculptures that come to life through vibrant colours. The artist uses a radiant spectrum of colours for each of his pieces, exaggerating their animated nature. As a result, the sculptural works have a whimsical appeal that, upon closer inspection, leads one to question the presence of violent tools and symbols of death (skulls). Ultimately, Fosik’s work explores themes of mortality, idolatry, and the duality of humanity between the physical and symbolic self.
