Installation at Britomart Project Space

A selection of Dick Frizzell's I'm here for the Monkey series is now installed at the Britomart Project Space located at 26-28 Customs Street East, Britomart.

This series was completed last year for the Auckland Art Fair 2016 and boosted an impressive display of 100 individual, unique works on canvas each sized at 200 x 200mm. This project, and namesake of the series, is based on his Phantom works that began in the 1970s which developed from the interests of the artist’s self-proclaimed ‘misspent comic-book youth'.

For further information on these works, please contact us.

Dick Frizzell with his limited edition 'Weather Bomb' Blunt umbrella

Blunt™ has teamed up with Dick Frizzell to create the limited edition ‘Weather Bomb’ umbrella.  Frizzell comments "I got together with my mate Tamati Coffey, who knew all the weather sayings under the sun and drew up the 'weather bomb'".  The result is an umbrella painted with sayings, song lyrics and famous weather reports - in Frizzell's signature sign-style print.

For every 'Weather Bomb' umbrella sold, Blunt™ will donate $40 to Oxfam NZ, to put towards their climate change initiatives.

Visit Blunt Umbrellas online to order, or read more about the project here.

Installation view from Frizzell's Escape from Salvation Part III

NZ Herald arts writer T.J. McNamara reviewed both of our current exhibitions from Lee Ufan and Dick Frizzell.

On Frizzell, he writes: "Frizzell's clever eye and searching brush fixes on the New Zealand scene as all good painters here should."

On Korean minimalist artist and philosopher, Lee Ufan, he states: "Three of the paintings, all called Dialogue, carry isolated gestural forms in watercolour. They are not in any sense representational but rather forms for meditation."

Read the full review here. Both exhibitions close on November 19th.

Frizzell to help fundraise for the Hundertwasser Arts Centre & Wairau Maori Art Gallery

Frizzell to help fundraise for the Hundertwasser Arts Centre & Wairau Maori Art Gallery
The limited edition print in progress

Dick Frizzell will lend his artistic hand to create a limited edition silkscreen print to help fundraise money for the Hundertwasser Arts Centre & Wairau Maori Art Gallery in Whangarei. The Hundertwasser Foundation in Vienna has given Frizzell the copyright permission to produce the print, with the working title of Homage a Hundertwasser’. 

Friedensreich Hundertwasser was an Austrian artist and architect, who has ties to New Zealand after he purchased land in the Bay of Islands in the 1970s, where he lived until his death in 2000. He designed and built the Bottle House, as well as the 'Hundertwasser Toilets' in Kawakawa which is a hot spot for tourists, and one of the most photographed toilet blocks in New Zealand. In 1993, the Mayor of Whangarei invited him to design an art centre for the city and now 20 years on, this design will hopefully be implemented with the help of donations and backing from local council and national museums and galleries.

The Art Centre will have a gallery space to exhibit over 50 original works by Hundertwasser on loan from Vienna and will also include the Wairau Maori Art Gallery, to showcase and celebrate contemporary Maori art. They hope to raise upwards of $13 million and commence building in 2017.

For more information on this project and ways in which you can donate or volunteer, visit their website here.

Art Auction raises $22,000 for children in need

 

This March marks the fourth anniversary of the Syrian crisis which has left 12.2 million people in desperate need of humanitarian assistance - including 5.6 million children, more than the entire population of New Zealand.

Gow Langsford Gallery and gallery artists Dick Frizzell, Max Gimblett, John Pule, Sara Hughes and Reuben Paterson are proud to have been part of World Vision's campaign The Forgotten Millions.  On the 18th of March, seven new works, made especially for the event, were auctioned off at a fundraising event that raised a total of $22,000.

To continue World Vision's work with these kids and their families, more funds are urgently needed. 

Donations can be made on the World Vision website.
