Regina Foster is from Johannesburg, South Africa and currently lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Born into an artist family, she studied in South Africa under Carlos Sdoya and Karin Jaroszynska. Growing up under apartheid afforded Regina a first hand experience of the necessary changes that can lead to a new social awareness.
The concept of multidimensional poverty has struck a chord with more than just economists and policymakers. The rose painting in Dr. Foster's office and the artwork for this story are among a series of pieces by Santa Fe-based artist Regina Glassman Foster, Dr. Foster's sister-in-law, which were inspired by his work on multidimensional poverty. For her, the concept represents not just suffering, but the ability to make changes and pursue happiness.
"It rings true," Ms. Foster says. "If we can work on areas where we're deprived, it will be a better world for our children, the next generation. It's something that is doable."
