About

Born in Sydney, Ashley studied at the National Art School Sydney, BFA 1992. Frost is represented in Australia by Stella Downer Fine Art and in Hong Kong by ZZHK gallery. His recent urban and cityscape works, in both oil on board and mixed media on paper, evoke the diversity, colour and convergence of urban elements around some of our major cities; the curious and vibrant places, where the city's periphery converges with the inner suburbs; at the anomalous moment where day ends and night begins.


The works have developed from landscape works centred on the cities of Sydney, New York, Beijing, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Brasilia where the artist has been conducting PhD research and exhibiting his work. From his studio in Sydney, Frost is often seen painting or drawing plein air on roadsides or atop of buildings, capturing the last of the day's light. Frost has exhibited since 1996 with three solo shows in New York (2000, 2002 & 2004), and numerous group and solo exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne. In 2003 he won the prestigious Kings Art Prize (Acquisitive $10,000) and has been finalist in a number of national art prizes.



艾希理福雷出生在悉尼,曾就讀於 悉尼國家藝術學院,於1992年獲得 藝術學士學位。艾希莉是澳大利亞 的Stella Downer Fine Art的代表. 他近期城市風光系列的作品,既有 油板畫也有使用各種混合的元素作 畫,描繪出了我們周邊一些主要城 市的差異,色彩以及其它城市元素 的匯聚;勾畫了城市邊緣與郊區內 交界處奇特且有活力的地方;白日 以及結束夜晚降臨的異常時刻。


艾希理的作品發展起源於他所創作的悉尼、紐約、北京、墨爾 本、香港和巴西利亞的風景畫,這些正是他讀博士學位進行研 究與举办画展的地方。從悉尼的畫室,我們可以常常看見福雷 在路邊或樓頂畫創作外光畫,捕捉每日最後的一道余光。


自1996年起,福雷在紐約分別於2000年,2002年和2004年 辦了三場個人畫展,同時在悉尼和墨爾本有數不勝數的團體 與個人畫展。2003年他榮獲了赫赫有名的國王藝術獎(價 $10,000),並參與過諸多國際藝術獎的最終角逐。
