Pain will not have the last word ( 75ft scroll)

After experiencing 3 miscarriages Foster produced a 75 ft scroll presenting moments and memories which he would have experienced and shared with his children if they were alive. The piece presents the very personal, raw emotions and experiences of the miscarriages from the perspective of a father, challenging traditional masculine macho culture and delivering a message of miscarriages being a shared experience between partners and not exclusive to the mother.
