Carole Foster Description

Carole Foster was born in 1952 and raised in Wangaratta, Victoria. From an early age she showed a flair for drawing and painting and now has 30 years experience as an artist and travelled extensively, living in New Zealand, Norfolk Island, England, Finland, Holland and Germany, using these and other countries as a base to travel and to collect information for paintings. In recent times Carole has travelled extensively in the United States and in South America creating a new look for her works. In 2003 she returned to New York to participate in the Art Expo with Oz Arts.

A solid grounding in realist art has permitted Carole to explore and teach a more contemporary approach to her subject while still being able to experiment. Subsequently, she has developed a modern abstract impressionist style. Her “modern abstract approach” guarantees her the liberty to grapple with the heavy demands of creating “high energy vibrant pieces” and equally capturing the visually silent atmospheres in “works of a quiet nature”.

Many of the colour gradations Carole achieves are for maximum emotional and optical impact and it is the fact that they approach unusual colour application that adds a unique quality to the work.

Sometimes Carole’s work is gestural and impressionistic and often romantic in quality. She does not restrict herself to landscapes, but for the most she draws inspiration from the Australian outback. The arid zones, which Carole has experienced first hand during many 4-wheel drive excursions and through hiring small planes for fly-overs, evoke the most emotion in her work.

Carole now lives in Dromana, Victoria where her studio is. She currently teaches artists to their final goal and is a part-time curator/artistic director with a large gallery.

Over the last 32 years Carole has had over 29 Solo Exhibitions. She has worked with Qantas Exhibitions that were throughout the Qantas Club lounges around Australia and has featured in many galleries across Australia and in New York, Hong Kong, San Francisco and London.

In December 2006 she was commissioned to do five 2 metre tall paintings for a restaurant in San Francisco.
