Johnston Foster "Catch & Release"


poster for Johnston Foster "Catch & Release"

This event has ended.

Johnston Foster, a Richmond, VA-based artist, will present his fourth solo show, titled Catch & Release, at RARe. He will exhibit a group of new sculptures created from salvaged materials gathered from highway medians, back roads, alleys, and dumpsters. Works include an 11-foot long, 12-legged tiger balancing a hornets' nest in its tail, a gutted shark giving birth to its offspring, a hornet-infested pizza, and a unicorn sinking in a tar pit.

The artist continues his exploration of fundamental sculptural ideas of shape and form by utilizing and breathing new life into things that consumers consign to the dust bin. Imparting a bold, readily recognizable rough-hewn aesthetic to materials and exhibiting an exuberant, almost child-like engagement with process, he infuses his objects with a combination of wide-eyed innocence and an open-ended sensibility that is simultaneously inviting and foreboding.
