This original artwork by Weston Frizzell titled 'Nama Malarky' is part of the WESTON FRIZZELL ‘BLOCKBUSTERS’ series, from the exhibition of the same title, with Dick Frizzell in 2012.
When seen together, the 6 painting series spelt the word BLOCKBUSTERS, and each individual painting referenced a famous New Zealand painter. This piece looks at Hotere’s Malady work, and in true Weston Frizzell style, the word ‘Malady’ has been replaced with ‘Malarky’.
Enamel, Acrylic lacquer and Automotive Urethane on hardboard.
Size: 1200mm x 1800mm
Note: This original painting comes with a signed limited edition print, as well as a signed 'BLOCKBUSTERS' Catalogue.
Weston Frizzell is the collaborative identity of artists Otis Frizzell and Mike Weston. Successful and frequently controversial, the “high performance art partnership” has its roots in the street art and pop culture melting pot of Auckland’s K’ Rd, and takes a production-line approach to producing painted one off and edition works, and a series of hit edition prints.
Subversively oblivious to conventional notions of authorship or originality, the work is informed by dada, hip-hop, situationism, graffiti art and techno. By applying sampling, cutup and remix techniques to the creative process, Weston Frizzell manipulate appropriated subject matter to create slick, accessible and edgy work with tight production values.
