Landbaby @ The Bluecoat: Victoria Foster

26 January – 2 March 2013

Victoria Foster is an illustrator and designer-maker with a background in contemporary fine art practice.

She lives and works between fields and forest in the South east of England .

Fascinated by the seemingly ordinary, beauty found in the everyday and the overlooked, work  often references rural environments, familiar objects from domestic life, snippets of history, half-truths and folklore.

Her intricately drawn pieces employ repetition , layering , collage and abstraction often suggesting a gentle sadness of passing things.
