AJ Fosik does brilliant things with paint and wood.
My first reaction to his work was:
“Hey, these look like idols from some kind of belief system!”
Which, if we’re to go by the review on his website, is his goal: to dethrone belief in gods or God by creating his own personal iconography. Fascinating, as Spock would put it.
Beautiful stuff, too! His craft is flawless.
