In 2011 Dick Frizzell gifted a major collection of artist’s proofs to the Hawke’s Bay Museums Trust - a set of works, retained by the artist, which had been produced in addition to each of his limited edition prints. This collection takes a whistle-stop tour through the riotous imagination of one of New Zealand’s most prolific contemporary artists.

Frizzell began making prints in the late 1970s. His first post-art school print, Still life with a glass of wine and olive branch, was produced from Auckland’s Snake Studios in 1977. After the establishment of Auckland’s Muka Studios in 1984, Frizzell was fully drawn into the world of printmaking.

This collection of prints dates from the mid- 1990s to the present day. Together these works highlight the role that prints have come to play in Dick Frizzell’s recent work; creating a space to revisit ideas, reach out to new audiences, and remix different creative worlds. This exhibition includes the brand new 2015 edition of the original Still life with a glass of wine and olive branch – coming full circle to celebrate almost forty years of prints by Dick Frizzell.

An exhibition developed and toured by MTG Hawke’s Bay.
