Mixed Blessings, mixed media paintings
Ms. Foster’s exhibition explores the beauty inherent in food commodities we consume and dispose of each day. Coffee beans, tea bags, corn and rice along with paper, fabric, hair and thread become characters in her abstract tales. Traditional painting mediums have a place, too, when combined with oil, coffee, resin and wax. The passage of time, memory, loss and cultural convergence are all evoked by these seemingly simple works of art.
