Examining the work of sculptor Jamie Frost, whose large and small-scale wood works are representative of the human form.
The Way of All Flesh consists of a series of large figurative wood carvings, as well as smaller works, maquettes and drawings demonstrating a combination of fine workmanship and the natural raw texture of the timber. The emotive qualities in Frost's work are apparent in the tension between the finely chiselled areas and the split and rough fragments of wood.
Jamie Frost's work in sculpture leaves a trail of the creative process in energetic marks made by hand tools and machinery, while other areas are finely carved. The contrast of techniques conveys a sense of movement and heightened emotion, reflecting the dialogue between heart and mind, or instinct and rationality.
