Holy Island borrows from the provincial traditions of British Romantic painting alongside a personal archive of tabloid newspaper photographs, children's illustration and advertising imagery. Foster offers a sardonic and often humorous swipe at the role of nationalism, religion and our commonly assumed cultural values. The exhibition presents a peculiarly British world: petty, vengeful, absurd and contradictory.
