Grant Foster: Human Made


Human Made is a solo exhibition by London-based artist Grant Foster, who works across painting, sculpture, collage and text.

In a gallery-wide installation that suggests the permeability between memory and dream, the artist explores contemporary social issues including gender, sexuality, wealth redistribution, and the artist’s own working-class, Trinidadian and British, dual-heritage background.

The exhibition presents two series of free-standing, double-sided paintings which run through both gallery spaces. Each work is an interconnected component within a wider meta-narrative, employing a conventional painted surface while revealing a notational and diaristic reverse. The exposed backs of the canvases embed elements of text, sculpture, and film, collaged across their hand-made, repurposed timber stretchers, serving to expand the paintings’ interpretive possibilities.
