Culver City, CA – LeBasse Projects is proud to announce ‘Spectrum,’ new works from Nate Frizzell. The Los Angeles based artist returns with a new body of work, his first solo show of oil paintings since 2011.
For this exhibition Frizzell continues his exploration of self-discovery through the use of color. The new works will feature a series of large-scale oil paintings each focusing on a single palette – in turn making up the full spectrum of colors. Through his use of color and scale, Frizzell aims to create an immersive setting for the viewer. With each painting the color palette is utilized both to aid in telling a story and in exploring what feelings are traditionally evoked by the represented colors.
Frizzell suggests: “For this show, aside from wanting to develop a cohesive body of work on a larger scale, I wanted to see what I'm able to do with the space and see how size can affect the subject matter. I decided to use a very limited palette to tell the story of the colors I use and explore what they mean traditionally as well as the feelings they evoke in me. I wanted each painting to have an obvious focus on a single color, but also use every other color in each piece.”
The end result is a series of large paintings that both literally and figuratively represent the artists full color palette from previous periods of work. After his previous shows opened so successfully this exhibition will undoubtedly be one of the more anticipated of the season's openings.
Hi everyone. There was a lot of confusion on the prints for the last show and I am very sorry for that. But there are a few box sets left, as well as a small number of individual prints. All are available now at www.papertigerstore.com
The box sets are $1500 and include eight signed 12"x18" prints, one of each of the paintings from the show, as well as a signed original painting(studies for the larger paintings), and a signed hand embossed print on card stock.
The individual prints are $200 and also come with the hand embossed print.
