Frosts until May at Brook Gallery, Budleigh Salterton

Walking into Red

The Brook Gallery, Budleigh Salterton, will have Frost until May in their Back2Back exhibitions – two shows featuring the work of artist Anthony Frost and then followed by his father, Sir Terry Frost.

The connection between father and son runs deep. Their shared love of colour and form is obvious yet, according to the gallery there’s more to it than that. ‘The work of these highly regarded artists provokes a feeling of optimism and leaves one feeling alive, an innate skill that’s been passed from father to son,’ it says. No wonder the Frosts are being signalled as signposts to spring.

Sir Terry Frost RA enjoyed a prolific career spanning more than five decades and enjoyed international standing throughout. He moved permanently to Cornwall where his love of the region proved a source of inspiration.

Born in St Ives, his son Anthony Frost inherited his father’s love of colour and collage and has forged his own incredibly successful career. Anthony studied at the Cardiff College of Art. Since then Anthony has lectured at Falmouth School of Art, Canterbury School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University, the University of East London and exhibited his work at numerous major galleries, including the Tate St Ives.

Anthony has his own distinctive style and unique methods in producing his own work with vivid and strident shapes yet the same inherent joy at its heart. This shared passion in print by both artists, is celebrated throughout this exhibition.

The exhibition of Anthony Frost runs until Thursday, April 15, and Terry Frost runs from Friday, April 16 to Friday, May 7
