Biography

Entirely self-taught, Phil Frost produces mixed-media paintings, works on paper, and installations of found objects—including baseball bats and barn doors—that pulse with energy. His aesthetic is as mixed as the materials with which he works and reflects his keen sense of design. In a series of recent works, including Untitled (37) (2009), Frost layers lacey, white, abstract patterns over intricate backgrounds that feature images of African mask-like faces, scribbled words, and passages of vibrant color. A pantheist, he expresses his spirituality through heart-like shapes that recur in his works.
