I’m going to do a little bit of shameless self-promotion and invite you all to check out the cover story I wrote on AJ Fosik for issue 18 of Hi Fructose Magazine. If you aren’t already familiar with the work, I’ll share a few of AJ’s images with you and a snippet from the feature. Enjoy!

The Third Way Out

“AJ Fosik creates beastly three-dimensional figures out of wood, paint, and nails. Mounted on walls or monumentally erected atop pedestals, his sculptures have appeared in numerous exhibitions, the reigning representatives of a medium in which most urban contemporary artists only dabble. Displayed like hunting trophies or specimens in a museum of natural history; sometimes brightly colored; always painstakingly detail oriented, Fosik’s feral creations take the shape of fantastic or true animal beings that communicate a subversive, anti-religious commentary through the depiction of hyperbolized fictional gods. Nameless, assigned no specific meanings or powers, beholden to no formal religion – real or contrived – Fosik’s idols are not meant to contribute to some grand theological narrative of the artist’s design. They are masterfully beautiful objects that examine the nature of religious iconography through an absence of religious discourse. In this way, Fosik is pointing to the power and scope of man’s innate creativity devoid of divine inspiration.” – Lainya Magaña, Hi Fructose Magazine Issue 18

Daphne Guinness guest stars in Joseph Lally’s new film,  The Black and White Maze of the Painted Zebra. The film recalls old French films (think Marguerite Duras) and of course it is highly stylized and surreal. Many would guess that Daphne would be playing the role of the zebra given her trademark hair, however the zebra is just a metaphor for a pattern of getting lost in one’s mind.  See Interview magazine for a chat with the heiress and the director.
