Colin Foster @ Springsteen Gallery, Jul 9 – Aug 6

, 8 July 2016

Colin Foster is presenting solo exhibition The Squinter’s Watch at Baltimore’s Springsteen Gallery, opening July 9 and running to August 6.

There is little information on the themes of the exhibition itself, aside from a short fictional text by Nicolette Polek that tells the story of a seemingly stranded fire-breathing dragon in a juniper tree. Abused by the boys and violently retrieved by a girl in a “hot pink skirt”, the events that unfold are observed from a distance by a first-person narrator: “someone probably loved that juniper tree.”

Foster, who appears to work largely with sculpture and installation, has more recently presented as part of Springsteen’s exhibition at Mexico City’s Material Art Fair 2016 and also the Baltimore-based gallery’s Narrow Waves group exhibition at New York’s Interstate Projects last year.

See the Springsteen Gallery website  for details.**
