Tate St Ives Exhibition

Luke Frost Artist in Residence

Luke Frost Supervolts no. 1 2008

Luke Frost is the sixth artist to emerge from the current Tate St Ives Artist Residency at Porthmeor Studios, St Ives. An abstract painter, his works explore the pictorial possibilities of colour. Built up in layers to a refined, smooth surface, these strictly formal arrangements pose the saturation, rhythm, balance and contrast of colour against architectural space.

Running since 2003, the Tate St Ives Artist Residency has supported emerging artists based both in Cornwall and in the United Kingdom by helping them to develop their practice through six- to twelve-month residencies. Located in Number 5 Porthmeor Studios, formerly occupied by both Ben Nicholson and Patrick Heron, Frost's residency culminates with an exhibition and publication on the artist.
