Alistair Frost

I have very little to say about Alistair Frost’s work, since I’ve only seen it once or twice. I stumbled upon his paintings at the Liste Art fair in Basel, unaware they were his, but loved them, obviously. Earlier that year I had seen a presentation of his work at the Rijksakademie Open Studios in Amsterdam, where he had created a simple bar-like installation of pieces of drywall. It looked there had just been an opening of his own painting exhibition; Spilled drinks, empty cups all around and those little paper umbrellas, amongst some avant-garde looking ceramic cocktail glasses. I thought it was just a very fresh way to present your work.
