Biographical Note

Stuart Ian Frost was born in Bath, England in 1960, attended the Bristol Polytechnic and Wolverhampton Polytechnic before earning his master’s degree in sculpture from the Royal College of Art in London in 1986. Since 1996 Frost has lived in Bergen, Norway where he lectures at the Academy of Fine Art. Although he creates discrete sculptures for exhibition, most of his works are large-scale, site-specific, outdoor interventions using materials found locally. He has been invited to create works in the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, South America, the United States, and Taiwan. Contemporaries with whom he can be compared include Patrick Dougherty, Chris Drury, and Andy Goldsworthy.

Scope and Content

The majority of Frost's career has been devoted to creating sculptural interventions in outdoor environments using locally found materials. The catalogs, exhibition announcements and press materials in the archive are related to his works of this nature created from 1986-2011. Frost, who has been in residence in numerous countries in order to create his site-specific works, belongs in the company of other late 20th-century UK artists creating works on site from local materials, such as Andy Goldsworthy and Christ Drury. His work deploys various geometries in juxtaposition with organic forms. In particular, Frost often weaves plant materials, such as reeds, into radially symmetrical objects that occupy wetlands.
