Artist Statement Submitted 2014Charlotte Foust is a contemporary Southern artist from North Carolina. Rooted in abstract expressionism, her large scale paintings are an intuitive exploration of working with multiple layers of acrylic paint and drawing. A spontaneous mark or line on the canvas expresses a personal moment in time that speaks universally to the soul through the unspoken language of non-objective art.
Foust graduated from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte with a degree in Visual Art and began her career with an Emerging Artist Grant from the Arts and Science Council. Her work is widely collected and has been included in exhibitions at the Mint Museum of Art, the Levine Museum of the New South, McColl Center for the Arts, and Bascom Center for Art.
