Against the Infinite - Crazy Three Dimensional Art by AJ Fosik
You might recognizeAJ Fosik as the artist responsible for the cover of Mastodon's 2011 record The Hunter. These pictures are from his solo exhibition “Against the Infinite” currently running until December 21 at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. The coup de grâce of the show is a collection of 30 animal heads on diamond-shaped panels that can be combined to form a giant 30-sided shape called a rhombic triacontahedron.
Ivan Puig is a Spain based artist who lets his own sculptures drown. Two of his works are called ‘Crecimientos Artificiales’ (Artificial Growth) and ‘Hasta Las Narices’ (Fed Up). The second series outlines a commentary about education and questions the artificial in the induction of knowledge. In a general manner it reviews the structures of power upon which the doctrine of education is ‘seated’ in the country and its system, strongly influenced by conflicts in the economic, political and social order. The first piece consist of different installations, its origin is related to the proportions of the events and its relativity. The comic narrative is employed. The spectator moves among the pieces like a zoom out. Though they both have pretty much different contexts and meanings, we appreciate this sculptures for their quite tragedy encouraging to think further about it without any noise.
A gallery of ceramic sculpture. It’s rare to feel as if an animal can possess you — inhabit your body, mind and spirit as if it were a new lover exploring all your real and artificial selves. Dress your dogs and cats with as many sweater vests, booties and hats as you want; they’ll never come close to the hybrid human qualities that seductively inhabit the work of Beth Cavener Stichter. This might be, in part, because she views her stone sculptures as portraits — of people she has met briefly in passing or good friends or family. She doubles the uncanny moment by acknowledging that these creatures are self-portraits as well, since the very act of interpreting another’s actions, facial expressions, and intentions says — and betrays — much more about our own fears and desires than the other person. We rarely acknowledge or intellectually wrestle with this flash-fiction judgment that we impose onto friends and strangers alike.
