Jared Foster was born in California in 1976 and raised in the isolated town of Juneau, Alaska. He currently lives and works in the Bay Area. He is an engineer by education but has always found himself coming back to artistic endeavors. Prior to his studies in engineering Jared studied Art and Architecture.
Jared’s work is influenced by composition found in everyday life and currently focused around architectual components and how light and shadow are integral to our observation and his work. Most of his work begin with an observation, that observation is transformed into a black and white reference to promote abstraction of color. He will often focus on a specific area of a subject to remove identifying markers from the work to challenge the observer to see without understanding.
Jared is currently showing work at the Main Street Art Gallery in Martinez, has shown at Studio Gallery SF as well as a number of public space in the Bay Area.
