MAGGIE FOSKETT is a rag picker of small cosmologies in nature, fragments that she combines, collage style, between glass plates to print directly from her enlarger in a painstaking Cliche Verre process. Light flows through slices of vegetables, moth wings, etc., to produce colors at a pitch that just vibrates. "Her images reveal astonishing correlations, and make a strong visual statement, and maybe a political one," writes Carl Little. Originally from Brazil, a graduate of Bryn Mawr College, this student of Ansel Adams lives on Sanibel Island, Florida, and the coast of Maine. She is represented in many permanent public collections, notably The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C., and Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania. Selected solos: Bryn Mawr College, PA; Chicago Public Library Center, IL; Evansville Museum of Arts and Science, IN; Farnsworth Museum of Art, Rockland, ME; Fernbank Museum of Arts and Science, Atlanta, GA; and the National Academy of Arts and Sciences, Washington, DC.
