Shore's inaugural artist-in-residence took place in March, with students able to share in the expertise of landscape painter, Ashley Frost.

He is predominately a landscape painter working in a semi-abstract style. His paintings play on the relationship between bodies of water, buildings, roads, cars and vast skies through a communication of colour, light and reflective qualities. He builds up thick, luscious layers of paint to give his works a highly appealing tactile quality. In 2017 he was a finalist in 2017 Archibald Prize, and has won and been a finalist in numerous other art prizes.

Ashley Frost has now finished his week-long residency in the Visual Arts Department. Whilst at Shore he has been producing work inspired by the local landscape including Lavender Bay and McMahons Point. This was a valuable opportunity for our students to see an artist at work and better understand how artworks evolve over time. We thank Ashley for giving us an insight into his practice and his willingness to engage the students.
