Sir Terry Frost

Sir Terry Frost

Born in: 1915

United Kingdom

Sir Terry Frost RA (1915-2003) was an important British abstract painter, one of the leading artists of the St Ives School. He was born in Leamington Spa in 1915, and left school at the age of 14. He started painting while a prisoner of war in Germany 1943, encouraged by young artist and fellow prisoner Adrian Heath. 'In prisoner-of-war camp I got tremendous spiritual experience, a more aware or heightened perception due to starvation, and I honestly do not think that awakening has ever left me.' After the war Terry Frost studied at St Ives School of Art (1946) under Leonard Fuller (1891–1973), then at Camberwell School of Art (1947–50). He worked as Barbara Hepworth's assistant in 1951 and had his first solo exhibition at the Leicester Galleries in 1952. Frost taught at many institutions including the Bath Academy of Art (1952-4), Leeds University (who awarded him he was the Gregory Fellowship in 1954) and Reading University. In 1960 Frost had his first solo show in New York at the Barbara Schaefer Gallery. Whilst there he met some of the leading American Abstract Expressionists, and the experience encouraged him to start painting on a much larger scale. He was awarded the John Moore's Prize in 1965, elected to the Royal Academy in 1992 and knighted in 1998. A retrospective of his work was held at the Royal Academy in 2000. Sir Terry Frost's work reflects his gratitude and joie de vivre at having survived wartime incarceration; it is full of colour, light and the pleasure of existence 'a sense of delight in front of nature'. Frost took his inspiration from nature; the sun, moon, water, boats and the female form are recurring motifs abstracted into sensuous circles and curves. These shapes are often coloured in dramatic blues, reds, oranges, yellows and blacks. Frost combined strict formal discipline with great expressive freedom and a natural sureness of touch.
