About the artist
Terry Frost (1915–2003) Terry Frost, a pioneering figure in British Abstract art, is known for his innovative geometric forms and vibrant colour scheme. Frost learned studied under the guidance of Leonard Fuller, founder of the St Ives School. He later studied at Camberwell School of Art and worked alongside Barbara Hepworth as her assistant. Despite starting with a sober, realistic style, Frost soon shifted towards abstraction. His work, while abstract, drew heavily from nature, and frequetly from the St Ives harbor. His unique approach often involved patterns of interconnected shapes, shunning geometric regularity. Frost was knighted in 1998 for his significant contribution to art.
