Tony Foster

The Foster
Palo Alto, CA


British artist Tony Foster’s work is based on his journeys into the world’s wild places—rainforests and deserts, mountains and canyons, the Arctic and the Tropics. For more than forty years, he has been travelling on foot or by canoe, kayak or raft, making camp, and painting his often large-scale watercolours on site. His paintings describe not only the landscape he is living in, but also his observations of flora and fauna, geology, ethnography, and history. The finished works incorporate “souvenirs” of maps, written diaries, and symbolic objects that he finds or constructs. Tony Foster has had many solo exhibitions, including at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum, the California Academy of Sciences, the Yale Center for British Art, and the Royal Watercolour Society, London. Exploring Beauty: Watercolour Diaries from the Wild and Sacred Places: Watercolour Diaries from the American Southwest are two complete Journeys on exhibit at The Foster, a museum in Palo Alto, California.
