Nite Brite is a series of paintings made during the height of the pandemic while under strict quarantine regulations. Influenced by liminal time and space, the series explores real and artificial reality. Platforms such Zoom, Zwift and Apple’s operating system are used to explore altered rituals and the everyday experience.

With irony and humor, Foster portrays often-overinflated expectations of the way we live and how we try to better ourselves from previous generations. Her work suggests a narrative by presenting a frozen moment in time, aiming to preserve and give authority to the everyday experience. Utilizing appropriated images from art, architecture, technology and popular science as starting point, she depicts sometimes banal scenes that have the potential to be spectacular and fantastic. Foster frequently uses nature as a backdrop. Toys, hybrid plants, designer pets and naturally occurring spectacles find their way into the work as she rethinks the meaning of contemporary landscape and the technological sublime.
