Richard Forster

29 August 2015 – 28 February 2016

Richard Forster

This is a past exhibition which ran from 29 August 2015 to 28 February 2016.

Richard Forster makes super realistic drawings from photographs rather than from life - either using his own snapshots, or images found in magazines, books or on the internet. His choice of subjects is diverse but they are brought together by an underlying interest in measuring his experience of the world. Common to them all is a documentary approach to time and its passing, and a sense of the place of the individual within the collective.
