Jamie Frost MRSS is a sculptor and draughtsman noted for his portraiture and figurative drawings. He is an award-winning artist who has exhibited internationally and across the UK.
Working with live models, he may take inspiration from classical sculpture, cinema, Butoh theatre, or a gesture made in his company. Jamie patiently considers the pose, composition and gesture of his works in lengthy experimentation. A layered process of sketches, prints, maquettes and photographs contribute to the production of major pieces of sculpture or installation.
Jamie’s sculptures and drawings play with a sense of narrative and have a strong emotional content, reflecting shared human experiences. He takes great pains to use iterative processes that create tightly corporeal forms, holding the viewer’s attention. This intensity eventually succumbs to the natural inclinations of the media in energetic and dramatic strokes, splinters, cuts, washes.
