Art on Sunday! New work going LIVE tonight: an iconic Taranaki scene from Michael Hight; and the languishing figure from Dick Frizzell‘s After the Ball.
Self-taught artist, Michael Hight, is well known for his images of beehives set in the New Zealand landscape. His work examines the beehive as a metaphor for transformation, and celebrates the beauty of the overlooked and the discarded.
Dick Frizzell MNZM (1943-)
Dick Frizzell is one of New Zealand’s most successful and high profile contemporary artists. Frizzell studied art at the Canterbury School of Arts from 1960-1964 and was employed in advertising before moving to Auckland to lecture at Elam School of Fine Arts. Frizzell’s kitsch and often cartoon-like paintings and prints, has created some of this country’s most iconic imagery.
