About this Exhibition

Dick Frizzell is often described as one of New Zealand's most popular artists. And his whopping new mural on the back of CoCA is about the perils of wanting popularity. Plucked from a sappy love comic, a handsome artist holds a painting and dreams of cracking the art-world big time. The mural's position on the back of CoCA gallery might not make him any happier. He's close to a space where art was shown and sold, but still emphatically outside. To add insult to injury, Frizzell has snuck one of his own paintings into the aspiring artist's hands. Oh if he only had some good contacts...
