By brainardcarey – 

Fredericka Foster works in oil painting and photography. She was born in Seattle and has spent most of her life on, or near, water. This proximity gave rise to a deep, personal connection with water, amplified by her Buddhist studies and practice. This lifelong connection to water has deeply informed her paintings.

After receiving her B.A. in Art at the University of Washington, she studied and taught at The Factory of Visual Arts in Seattle, and eventually moved to New York. She currently lives in New York City and Seattle.

Painting is a way of thinking and acting that relies on relationships
between mind and body, color and form.  In looking at a painting, it takes time to understand the artist’s hand; when we take the time, we connect with the artist’s mind.  Inherent, often unconscious tendencies determine the “look” of all my work, and each successful painting expresses the same intention – to embody emotion and imagination in a different way.

Music inspires me, and while listening to it I work in a complex dance with
paint and canvas in a physical act that frees creativity.  With close observation of my subject, most often water, and photographic references I have produced, I follow the rhythm that emerges from the canvas.  The colors chosen are often arbitrary, and paint is layered until I feel and see movement and life on the canvas.

Water, being necessary for all of life, is particularly suited to this kind of intention.
