Concepts of race, class, culture and identity are considered through traveling to several American cities; Portland, Boston and Detroit. Verbal descriptions or comments inherently contain anxieties and prejudices; these works are interested in the tension in seeking unbiased explanations.

Foster is a contemporary visual artist working in Melbourne, Australia. She majored in Sculpture, Sound and Spatial Practice, graduating from RMIT University in 2014 with first class honours. She has exhibited in both group and solo shows across Melbourne and recently completed a residency in the US. This is her first show with red gallery.
