In the 1950s Frost developed an abstract art based on personal experiences in front of nature. He moved from St Ives to Yorkshire where the majestic landscape of the Dales led him to make works that expressed his sense of the enormity of the place. Many such works have a central polygon, as here, but about this work Frost wrote that the ‘theme grew out of my experience of being in the North, the subject cannot be fixed to any one moment’.
