Maxine Foster

Maxine’s prints focus on the urban environment and are inspired by the constant changes made over time that are prevalent in our cities, such as graffiti, decay, day-to-day marks and man-made patterns. Her intention is to create artwork that appears to have been lifted from the very walls and floors of our metropolis’, giving new life to the discarded and disregarded, thus appreciating the beauty in what may be deemed ugly.

Maxine works mainly in the mediums of screen print, monotype and etching, frequently using palimpsest within the complexity of her multi-layered prints. She takes inspiration from her journey through the urban and natural landscapes, finding beauty in surfaces that have been eroded and changed over time.
