Dick Frizzell’s new series of paintings offers a critical and humorous response to the artist’s own shrewd observations regarding the long established divide between the art of the avant-garde and the academy.

Drawing upon images from vintage copies of Walter Foster’s how-to-draw and paint books, whose instructional pages democratised art for the masses, Frizzell’s images of still life floral arrangements, Dutch waterwheels, and dramatic seascapes are in fact paintings of paintings themselves.
