Acme Studios — Alex Frost

Supporting Artists since 1972

Alex Frost

Fire Station Residency

Alex Frost’s work is concerned with the tension and distance that exists between illusionism and literalism. His work has encompassed many styles, linked by his intensive, systematic working method and by his interest in a kind of compromised Minimalism.

His work has been shown nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions at Flat Time House, Dundee Contemporary Arts and Milton Keynes Gallery. He has undertaken several public commissions and participated in the Venice Biennale in 2009.

Fire Station Residency 2015-2020

Acme's residency at the Fire Station is one of the most directly supportive schemes for artists in the United Kingdom, providing combined studio and living space at low rents, as well as a half rent residency for a deaf or disabled artist. This five year fixed-term residency scheme is intended to allow artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and professional careers, and less time working to survive. 2015-2020 residents were selected by former Acme Residency and Projects Manager Julia Lancaster, and artists and former Fire Station residents Erika Tan and Ben Cove.
