A powerful scroll by artist Andrew Foster explores miscarriage from a male perspective:

“Andrew Foster, award winning artist and father of 2, challenges the common perception that miscarriage only happens to women; exploring his and other men’s miscarriage experience.

On a personal level, he celebrates the lives of the 3 children he has lost through miscarriage. This work is not sentimental or depressing but has an authenticity, integrity and a tenderness that breaks down the perception of who experiences miscarriage.

This work will provoke the viewer with its joyous aesthetics and challenging content. Both men and women will be moved by the imagery that celebrates the everyday experiences of fatherhood.

Included in the exhibition will be a 75ft x 2ft 4” scroll painting, ‘Pain will not have the last word’, inflatable sculptures that act as uncomfortable symbols of joy, and an 11ft x 11ft painting, ‘Miscarriage of Justice’ previously shown in New York in 2011.” Text from website: http://www.camden-image-gallery.co.uk/labour-of-love
