Terry Frost
Orchard Tambourine B was inspired by collages Frost had made using leftovers of canvas and card mounts. He decided to develop its vibrantly colourful theme further, like a musical fugue. The title pays tribute to the master printer Stoneman, whose studio was located at Orchard Flower Farm, Cornwall. Frost valued Stoneman’s guidance and exacting standards which were instrumental in the making of this series of woodcuts. The second part of the title references the percussion instrument, the shape of which is echoed in the print. Frost’s wish was that the viewer should derive as much enjoyment from the sets as the artist himself in the process of their creation.
Technique
Colour woodcut using three blocks per print, each printed twice and to the edge of the paper. Printed on 400gsm Velin Arches Blanc paper. From a series of 25 colour woodcuts published by The Paragon Press in 2002.

Terry Frost

Sir Terry Frost RA (1915–2003). Frost took up painting during his internment as POW in Bavaria in 1941. At the end of the war, he received an ex-serviceman’s grant to study painting at Camberwell School of Art 1947–50. With his wife Kathleen he moved to St Ives in 1950 where he worked as an assistant to Barbara Hepworth. A teaching career followed with spells at Bath Academy, Leeds School of Art, and Newcastle University, culminating in an appointment as Professor of Painting at Reading University from 1977 to 1981. Frost was elected a Royal Academician in 1992 and received a knighthood in 1998. In 2000 a major retrospective, Terry Frost: Six Decades, was held at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. A seminal figure among abstract painters associated with St Ives, Cornwall, Frost was introduced to printmaking in his student days at Camberwell College, London, in the late 1940s. Printmaking, with all its different techniques, became an integral part of Frost’s artistic practice. He died at St Ives on 1st September 2003.
