Alex Frost: BBQ


ArtSway is proud to present an exhibition of new work by the Glasgow-based artist, Alex Frost. The exhibition will include a range of new sculptures and drawings that relate directly to the residency Frost undertook in late 2007. These works play upon the concept of of the rural retreat in contrast to the artist's urban, or specifically suburban, standpoint.

The works for ArtSway contain subtle suggestions to wholesome and improving lifestyles. These include floral motifs adorning a box of slimmer's tea, a small crop of vegetables decorating a carton of vegetable juice or an image of a yucca houseplant. These motifs all share an uncomfortable relationship with their rural setting as well as collectively referring directly to it. In one example, a large mosaic sculpture of a packet of vegetarian hamburger-mix mimics high street signage, but it's meaning is left deliberately ambiguous.

Alex Frost's exhibition at ArtSway is presented in partnership with Milton Keynes Gallery.
