Thought to be one of Tony Foster’s greatest achievements, Searching for a Bigger Subject juxtaposes the world’s vastest canyon against the world’s tallest mountain. The journey is a literal examination of the greatest of all wild landscapes—the Grand Canyon (USA) and Mount Everest (Nepal and Tibet). Given the subject matter, many of this journey’s paintings necessitated a large format and are incredibly dramatic, spectacular works. Foster managed to capture the immensity of these landmarks while retaining their integral details.
