Lark & Key Gallery and Boutique in Charlotte, NC, Offers Work by Charlotte Foust

Lark & Key Gallery in Charlotte, NC, presents the exhibit, Patchwork, on view from Aug. 3 through Sept. 24, 2011. The exhibit features the mixed media paintings and collage of Charlotte Foust. She constructs visual narratives that are intuitive and organic explorations of personal and cultural themes

A single mark or line on blank surface provides a starting point for Foust. Working in mixed media: graphite, acrylic and collage allows her to layer and rework textured surfaces – with each painting resulting in a delightful discovery of things unseen. Her figurative works include images of stark monochromatic landscapes inhabited by anthropomorphic forms. Through the use of symbolic imagery such as birds, butterflies and wheels, Foust creates transition and movement through linear time, her figures sharing a common space that is familiar, yet unknown.

Foust graduated from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art. Early in her career she was awarded an Emerging Artist Grant from the Arts and Science Council, and since has consistently exhibited her work. Her paintings have been included in exhibits at the Mint Museum of Art, the Levine Museum of the New South, and the McColl Center for Visual Art. Her artwork is currently featured at galleries in North Carolina, Atlanta, Boston and Chicago.
