Ben Foster’s new exhibition Sculpture celebrates his most recognisable and loved works alongside a new playful series that sees the artist experiment with scale, colour and for the first time; movement.
Living in Kaikoura, a coastal town on the South Island of New Zealand, Ben’s surroundings inform and inspire his practice, using the native wildlife and natural geometries of the mountainous landscape. Foster’s elegant, geometric forms balance between realism and design. With both animal and human forms alike, Foster pairs back natural forms to focus on line, symmetry and scale juxtaposing the natural and man-made.
Exhibition opens: 5.30–7.30pm Tuesday 30 April 2019
