New Work / New York
Ashely Frost is returning to New York to exhibit new work based on plein air landscape studies around lower Manhattan and the East end of Long Island New York. For Frost plein air painting is very much about a shared vision of a time in a place. Typically arriving onsite at dawn or dusk, Frost paints small compositional studies, capturing the sublime transition of early morning, or late evening light. Frost’s paintings play on the relationship between bodies of water and vast skies through a communication of colour, light and reflective qualities.Thus the first light for these works is paramount, enabling Frost to explore a lush spectrum of colour on palette and in the works. There is also an immediacy and honestly in the works, due to a narrow window of gentle and yet dramatic light.
Frost has exhibited since 1996 with three solo shows in New York (2000, 2002 & 2004), and numerous group and solo exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne and Hong Kong. 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 Hong Kong with ZZHK Gallery. His work is included in a number of private and public collections both in Australia and abroad.
