Project Description

“Carole Foster has been inspired to capture the magic of the Australian outback on canvas. She spent many years travelling to the most remote and harshest parts of Central, North and Western Australia. Her superb work reflects the mystical “rhythms of the land” and will resonate with those who have had the good fortune to visit the outback.”

As an adult Carole first became interested in abstract, she had formal lessons and then turned to impressionism. However, she always admired artists such as Brett Whitely and Fred Williams.

Spending some 20 years roaming the outback from the Simpson dessert to Kakadu and the Kimberley’s she became very spiritually connected to the Australian outback and our indigenous people.

After many years sitting on hill tops Carole says the sheer joy, impressions and emotions stay with you for the rest of your life. Everything Carole has done she believes has helped her understand nature more, a “sacred connection with the brush which stays with you forever.”

Describing her work as gestural and impressionistic, it is also romantic in quality, with the artist not restricting herself to landscapes, although the outback tends to evoke much emotion.
