AJ Fosik and Bill McRight Count Back From Nothing

by Ken HarmanPosted on

Opening later this evening at Denver’s David B. Smith Gallery is an exciting show featuring the works of AJ Fosik and Bill McRight. McRight’s handmade shivs and weapons show the ingenuity of desperationand exemplify the sense of survival still found in many of today’scorrectional institutions and ghettos. The primitive nature of theweapons harken back to early man, and may provide the perfectcounterbalance, if not tool against, Fosik’s animalistic busts. Handcarved and crafted, the dazzling colors and ferocious countenancesinvoke a twisted vision of American Folk Art and provide the perfectantagonist, and trophies, to McRight’s work.
