About Jamie

Jamie Frost is an artist based on Yorkshire, UK. His large scale drawings are made with the tiniest of marks. Thousands of fine pen lines coalesce into flesh and bone. These closely observed and deliciously visceral drawings are repeatedly honed into powerful yet tender images. This is often mistaken for an interest in detail but is more akin to obsession and fervor, iterative marks and surfaces holding the forms they depict.

Jamie explains the work by saying, “We are complicated creatures with a myriad of feelings, drives and perceptions. Yet we are creatures still. At some point all that energy, frustration, joy, triumph, wonderment, confusion, has to be found in the lift of a finger or the purpose in a stride.”
