BALANCE
CARL FOSTER

carl foster nz abstract artist and colourful paintings

  Carl is primarily a self taught Auckland based artist.
He has worked in the signwriting field specialising in pin - striping for Hot Rods, a trade that he learnt from his father.
This is evidenced by the accuracy of the linear and 3 dimensional shapes embodied within his paintings.
Carl’s passion is the outdoors and interpreting the many varied people and experiences that colour his life. His influences have been the cubists and impressionists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Wes Freed, Wifredo Lam and Jean Michel Basquiat.

Carl paints intuitively straight from his mind. He rarely uses preparatory sketches preferring to work directly onto the surface and building up the work as it takes shape. Symbols and intersecting planes suggest a way into deciphering his work but the beauty lies in discovering something new every time you look at a work.

Each work is meticulously and painstakingly hand-painted and then sealed with a final protective varnish. Sometimes Carl has been known to paint landscape scenes plein-air in and around the west coast beach scenes of Auckland. Mostly his mission in his painting practice is to achieve balance both in line, tone and colour in the overall composition.
