'Art World Recommends' (Art World, 10/2008)

Young Glasgow-based Londoner Alex Frost is known for linking computerized and hand-made approaches in process-based self-portraits. Recently he has transformed computer-scanned versions of the labeling on “aspirational” products (such as After Eight mints) into ceramic mosaics on comically lumpen forms; think Warhol meets Gaudi. At rural ArtSway a few months ago, he fed mosaics of technological logos through rural and anti-technological filters, so they appeared, for instance, as if under water. His return to an urban context promises further interesting contrasts.
