Harriet Liddell Foster

Abstract Art

January 25, 2021

Harriet Liddell Foster is a British contemporary abstract artist who predominantly paints on canvas but is known for venturing into other mediums. Interested in creating a juxtaposition on and off the canvas, she tries to push the boundaries of a canvas and resist being restricted by a rectangle or a box, allowing herself to think outside and inside of it. Foster studied Fine Art at the University of the West of England, Bristol, where she was awarded a First-Class honors degree. Upon completing her studies, she was awarded a fellowship with Spike Island Gallery for a year. The artist also undertook Erasmus studies in Berlin at Universität der Künste Berlin.
