Ben Frost "Plague Landscapes"

This event has ended.

Geographically speaking, Australia is a planet all it's own. And just maybe that is the reason, and the ONLY reason, why Ben Frost hasn't already taken his seat in the front row of relevant Pop Artists working today.

If imagery had physical weight, Frost's canvases would come crashing down onto the gallery floor. His work is jam-packed with so much skewed pop culture imagery, his twisted characters appear to be fighting for face time. His work is overwhelming and reminiscent of the the billboards and video screens we are forced to view in a 'Clockwork Orange' like fashion everyday ---yet far more savory.

Looking at Ben Frost's work-- You think you've seen it somewhere before, --but wait, that's others trying to duplicate a style he's perfected long ago. Sure Frost's arsenal includes the icons and bubble gum color we've come to expect, but now turn up hue, turn up the saturation and add a story-line to that blockbuster summer movie-- It's Ultra Pop! --BANG! BANG!

Don't believe us? Come see "Plague Landscapes" for yourself . .. Just watch your feet.
