Ashley Frost’s return exhibition of ‘New Work/New York’, plein air landscape studies around the East end of Long Island, culminates this week. Living at his sister’s home in Sagaponack, Frost has been sharing a studio space with local artist Nathan Joseph. He will present this body of work in the Parasol Projects Pop-Up Gallery Rivington, New York from 15 -21 November 2016
Frost’s plein air painting captures time and place through the shared vision of light. Arriving at dusk or dawn, Frost paints small compositional studies, capturing the sublime transition of light and soft movement.
Frost’s paintings play on the relationship between bodies of water and vast skies through a communication of color, light and reflective qualities. Thus the first light for these works is paramount, enabling Frost to explore the lush spectrum of color on palette and in the works that is so prominent in the Hamptons at this time of year.
Frost has exhibited since 1996 with three solo shows in New York (2000, 2002 & 2004), and numerous group and solo exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Texas. In 2003 he won the prestigious Kings Art Prize (Acquisitive $10,000) and has been finalist in a number of national art prizes. He is represented in Australia by Stella Downer Fine Art, Internationally by Global Gallery and exhibits his work in Texas and Hong Kong. His work is included in a number of private and public collections both in Australia, America and abroad.
