Alex Frost

Page 1 | Biography


Frost (b. London 1973) lives and works in Glasgow. He graduated from the MFA at Glasgow School of Art in 1998 and has completed residencies at Spike Island, Bristol (2002), Royston Road, Glasgow (2001) and Grizedale, Cumbria (2000). Recent exhibitions include a solo shows at The Changing Room, Stirling - Alex Frost 1973, Alex Frost at Sorcha Dallas, Glasgow, both in 2004, and 'The Connoisseurs', at Dundee Contemporary Arts in 2010 (pictured above).

Alex Frost's recent practice has investigated the tension between the Minimalist tradition of modular repetition and the gestural quality of the hand-made, in a continuation of his interest in an 'impure or inbred' Minimalism. Earlier series of works include prototype Buckminster Fuller domes (1998), Gaudi-esque tiled sculptures (2000) and a series of works from 2002 made after the Minimalist sculptor Robert Morris' 'Untitled (L-Beams)', 1965-7. The works and writings of Morris in the 1970s provide Frost with a 'metaphorical plinth' to explore the sculptural tradition - from the miniature to the monumental, the decorative to the architectural - developing a practice described as 'a kind of monument to rationalism usurped by the very blobbiness of its construction'
