Alex Frost and his Format Wars

Alex Frost came to Gray’s to do his talk at lunchtime on Thursday. It was good to see him again, I am a big fan of his work – materials, subject, delicacy, modernism, craftism. I first saw his work accidentally at The Changing Room in Stirling , just by chance on my way to Glasgow a couple of years ago I dropped in to see the gallery and his work was just opening. Cool and confident, he talked about his past and present work, ideas of purity, banality of the everyday, symbols of modern life and that he’ll be around in the North-East at The Glenfiddich Distillery artist in residency over the summer. Current favs the HD-DVD/Blu-ray wars panels.
