ME & ART: DICK FRIZZELL
From Pop-art influences to landscape, through advertising and the contested area of Appropriation, much-loved and truly versatile artist Dick Frizzell has always immersed himself in the art around him. In Me, According To The History of Art, a journey from cave art through Rubens and Tintoretto to Cezanne and Lichtenstein, Frizzell sets out to track the historical threads that sit within his DNA as a 21st- century artist. It’s a fun romp, sitting on a bedrock of serious scholarship and reverence for the painters of the past, with masterful re-imaginings of key work. In conversation with Finlay Macdonald, the art history lesson you’ve been waiting for unfolds in all its colourful glory.
