About the artwork

By reproducing off-the-peg stock art from the internet, the young London-based painter asked questions about the nature and value of this readily available and easily distributed imagery, and painting’s relationship to it. Painted in broad strokes and a lightly washed, subdued palette, Frost's artworks possess a subtle playfulness and a decidedly optimistic aura.
