NEW COMMISSION FOR ZÜRICH

A recently completed work, the Bear & Ballerina marks the first of a new series of works to be exhibited in 2019. In this latest work Foster engages abstract geometric form to capture various fantastical creatures, with immaculately constructed sculptures in artfully finished aluminium that are playful and instantly familiar. His new body of works for 2019 show works of increasing subtlety, as Foster draws contrast between light and shade, human and animal, beauty and power.

Stark White Animal Sculptures

Kaikoura, New Zealand-based sculptor Ben Foster creates modern, inorganic renderings of animals that boast a geometric design. Each sculpture in his portfolio, whether it be a seal balancing an invisible ball, a horse standing in place, or a dog howling at the moon, blurs the lines between the real and abstract. They also each incite spectators to shift their positions to get the full visual spectrum of their complex shape.

Angular Animals Show off Clean Palettes and Breathtaking New Zealand Views

There are two things that Ben Foster most certainly knows how to do well—create gorgeous industrial versions of animal silhouettes and compose a damn good photo. It's not just luck or coincidence, either. There's a reason his work looks so fantastic nestled among the lush New Zealand scenery.
