British artist Doug Foster (b. 1961, UK) is well known for his complex video works, which transform footage taken from nature or urban landscapes into hypnotic abstract compositions designed to stimulate primal areas of the brain. Through his work he creates imagery that affects people on a visceral level. Years of research into the human visual system has informed his practice and his use of repeating spatial patterns and subtle temporal rhythms. His works are often presented as large scale audiovisual installations that appear as abstract compositions at first glance, but soon reveal themselves as constructed with intricately filmed elements from nature.

Foster has presented solo exhibitions including No Beginning, No End, Royal Festival Hall, London, 2014; UNKLE Sounds, James Lavelle, (all visuals for international tour), 2011/2012; In the Naughty Chair, Lazarides Rathbone, London, 2011; and Only Human, FAS Contemporary, New Bond Street, London, 2008. He has also presented in numerous group shows including, The 14th Factory, 440 North Avenue 19, Los Angeles, 2017; Daydreaming With… UNKLE, Lazarides Rathbone, London, 2017; Daydreaming With... Stanley Kubrick, Somerset House, London, 2016; Still Here - A Decade of Lazarides, Lazarides Rathbone, London, 2016; BRUTAL, Lazarides & The Vinyl Factory, 180 The Strand, London, 2013; amongst others.
