Marley Foster (she/her) is a sculptor and educator from Houston, Texas.

 

Foster creates work around themes and questions of home, femininity, whiteness, and social change, through the lens of domestic objects and their material histories. Alternating between labor intensive sewing practices and quick digital photography, Foster’s recent work explores the layers of “American” history held within the stuff that fills our homes, and attempts to unravel the family dynamics, Southern conservatism, and gender norms within which she was raised.

Foster earned BAs in Studio Art and English from Rice University, and recently earned her MFA in Sculpture from the University of Houston. Her work has most recently been featured in Annex Energy at SITE Gallery Houston. In addition to her studio practice, Foster currently works as an Adjunct Instructor at the University of Houston and Teaching Artist with various Houston art institutions.
