Through his artistic process, Jerry Frost expresses the many layers of his life through color, texture, and illusion. Pushing and pulling the paint and bringing it to a place of comprehensive completion is always my goal.
Jerry’s palette evolves with each series. Color expresses the here and now for Jerry, and as his life progresses, the color choices change. The work is abstract, suggestive, and always emotional. Oil on canvas is Jerry’s usual medium. His tools are putty knives, smudge rags and an occasional pencil. The only brush strokes seen in the work since the eighties are in his signature. Putty knifes seem to be more economical and thinners are not needed. Eliminating brushes also eliminates solvents so the earth gets a little break. Although Jerry’s work is by no means traditional, he started painting with the basic foundation of realism. For me this was the only way to come to a place where abstraction would have depth.
Sometimes painting is like diving into a bees hive to get the honey, a painful journey of resolve to get the taste of essence.
