Maxine Foster works mainly in the mediums of screen print, monotype, dry-point and etching, frequently using palimpsest within the complexity of her multi-layered prints. She takes inspiration from her journey through the urban and natural landscapes, finding beauty in surfaces that have been eroded and changed over time.


She takes inspiration, from her paths through our urban and natural landscape, finding beauty in erosion and surfaces forgotten by time, reflecting and recording these discoveries within her developing practice. Her work captures the constant changes made over decades, that are prevalent in our cities, such as graffiti, decay and day-to-day marks. The intention is to create artwork that appears to have been lifted from the very walls and floors of our metropolis’, giving new life to the discarded and disregarded, thus appreciating the beauty in what may be deemed ugly.
