WAM Dec15-16 Chris Foster
Nova Scotia artist Chris Foster is quite concerned about the future of the world and how we’re going handle what comes at us. Most of the weirdness he sees as being our own fault. But Chris also envisions an intelligent and responsible reaction to our problems; at least, he remains optimistic that we can overcome our self-made obstacles.
But there are warnings. Chris - an illustrator, printmaker, sculptor and carpenter - offers work in several forms in his new show, Frontiers in Real Estate, opening today at Eastern Edge Gallery in St. John’s.
There are collages, there are modified model trucks, and there is a deal of good and dark humour in the work as well.
I visited with Chris in the gallery on Thursday.
