Helena Foster - To See Beyond Seeing

Mon-Fri: 9:30-6pm; Sat: 10-6pm

Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present To See Beyond Seeing, a solo exhibition of new paintings on canvas, paper and copper exploring unconscious fate in everyday reality by Nigerian born, London based artist Helena Foster.

The dream-like characters and scenes in Foster’s paintings vary from daily life to verging on the mystical. They are concerned with psychological or spiritual states, and subjects’ agency in those circumstances. These heightened feelings are compounded by Foster’s rich use of colour and layering of paint, which often results in figures becoming framed by, yet sometimes indistinguishable from, their surroundings.
