Picking up where Warhol left off with his Brillo and Tide pieces, Weston Frizzell takes the well known ‘Surf’ laundry detergent out of the supermarket and place it in a crashing wave. Perhaps making a statement on plastic pollution in the ocean, or likening the tumbling water of a modern washing machine to the perfect barrel.

The #1 takes the idea right back to the bright images of the supermarket gallery of words and colours, and as always, shows WF staking their claim as the number one Pop Art duo in the Auckland art scene.

Enamel and Acrylic lacquer on hardboard.

 

Size: 1800mm x 1200mm

 

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.
