About the artist

Penny Foster is, mainly, a self taught artist and a photographer, currently, living in Gozo. At the age of 18, she studied a Foundation Course in Art at Reigate School of Art and Design. Later on, at the age of 36, she enrolled in a Fine Art Degree at Banbury School of Art. However, having become disillusioned with the content of the curriculum, she left halfway through in the second year.  With or without “proper” education, she manages to catch the sensuality of beauty.

In this exhibition, Penny Foster presents a group of black and white nudes. The light shimmers across their forms; one light from above, almost as if she is in a spotlight. Even though it’s a nude, it becomes like a veiled and suggestive beauty, thanks to the sensuality of the darkness, surrounding with delicacy the female figure.
