Why do certain moments stain?
In this body of work, Foster explores the anomalies within her own behavioral tendencies. Through the interrogation of experiences recalled from adolescence, she dissects moments that have fueled her fears, anxieties and have impacted her sense of self today. Considering not only how certain memories are stored but also why certain memories stick, while others fade away, emphasizing a moment’s ability to ‘stain’ the mind, permeating the works and the exhibition in an alizarin crimson hue.
Was this engrained generationally? Was this something learned? Was this something taught? Can this be pinpointed to a specific moment? Was this memory real or imagined?
