Terry Frost Expanding Colour: The Art of Terry Frost
Opening ceremony Friday 15 November 4-5PM
Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre presents an exhibition of works by Terry Frost (1915-2003), coinciding with the launch of the centre's November exhibition season featuring eight projects tied together by the common thread of cooperation, bonding and friendship.
Terry Frost (1915-2003) is respected as one of the most important British artists of the abstract movement, whose influence extended throughout Europe and across the world. Flowers Gallery are extremely proud to see a selection of major works presented within the esteemed setting of the Mark Rothko Centre, introducing his work in Latvia for the very first time.
Expanding Colour: The Art of Terry Frost is an exhibition highlighting the formative periods of his career, including key paintings and prints that established him as an leading Abstract British artist, OBE, John Moore Prize winner, Royal Academician and a world class colourist. With a career spanning over six decades, Frost had an impressive roster of British and international exhibitions and is included in a large number of significant collections.
Frost & Rothko were friends, their families paid countless visits to each other both in Britain and the United States. Each of the centre's exhibition projects is closely linked to Rothko’s work or influence, so the inclusion of Sir Terry Frost’s exhibition is no accident. It reaffirms the unity of art and highlights the individual style of this brilliant British artist.
