About the Artist
Johnston Foster brings a long-lost sense of hand-craftedness to his sculptures, which are created out of discarded, cast-off materials he finds strewn across highway medians, tossed into dumpsters, and abandoned in alleys. They are metaphors for survival, ironically demonstrating how the essential materials of nature can be transformed to support human existence, but then are recklessly consigned to the waste bin. The enormous admiration and respect accorded Johnston’s work is evidenced by the many exhibitions he has had at museums, universities & colleges, alternative arts venues, and commercial galleries, as well as the prominent collections his works have entered.
