Art on Sunday! New work going LIVE tonight: an iconic West Coast landscape from Stanley Palmer; a large framed print from Dick Frizzell; and a series of working sketches from Grahame Sydney.
Stanley Palmer (1936-)
Exhibiting since the late 1950s, Stanley Palmer is well known for his depictions of a rugged New Zealand landscape. Palmer’s prints are known for their signature fractured picture plane, a characteristic of his technique of combining bamboo engraving and lithography.
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.
Grahame Sydney ONZM (1948 – )
Since beginning his professional art life in 1974 he has worked as a painter, printmaker, photographer and writer and has become celebrated as the definitive painter of Central Otago. He has produced an enormously varied body of work: the luminous skies of Central Otago, his magnificent portraits, figure studies, still lifes, drawings and etchings.
