"ROMANTIC DAYS OF SAIL" 

This year, 2014, marks 40th anniversary of Joseph Frost's arrival in Australia after escaping from Czechoslovakia, his country of birth which was still under communist control. Australia has given Joseph the freedom to express his childhood dreams and passions. He admits to not being an attentive student whilst at school preferring to dream of the world outside unknown to him and to draw majestic tall ships and aeroplanes which might take him away from his country's repressive regime.

In those early years charcoal or pencil were his preferred medium and many of his drawings and sketches were frequently displayed along his schools corridors. He says it all seemed to occur so naturally without his realizing at the time that it was probably some inherited "gift".

His first exhibition was held in 1976 at the Proud's Gallery in Sydney and consisted solely of pencil works framed by himself with his line and wash mounts. Since that time Joseph has experimented and presented art works professionally in almost every medium - watercolours, tempera/gouache, oils, etchings. After almost 40 years of professionally producing art works in this variety of media he has returned to his grass roots of pencil, but this time lightly enhanced with coloured renderings.

Joseph has recently retired from painting professionally and this series of miniature pencil drawings "Romantic Days of Sail" will represent some of the last opportunities to secure his work now that he has significantly reduced his output.
