I bid for this lovely small painting by Luke Frost (“Light Sap and Deep Green Chromavolts Study”, acrylic on paper, 17.5 x 10 cm) at the ‘This Way Up’ silent auction to raise funds for Falmouth degree students show in Shoreditch later this year and got it!    It will be on show in ‘The Discipline of Painting’ show later this year with one or two other surprises…

I really love Luke’s pictures…although steeped in the St. Ives tradition (family connection, working in Heron’s old studio etc.) he owes more to the absorption of minimal painting out of Barney Newman as an example to which he’s added his own personal sensibility.  And now I own one albeit a rather modest piece!
