Take a trip through New Zealand art history according to Dick Frizzell in his new book It’s All About The Image. In the book Dick shines a light on some of the works he’s always loved – a number of which have been over looked in the usual round-ups. From Peter McIntyre inviting him up onto the scaffolding to watch him painting the WWII mural in the Hastings War Memorial Library, through to discovering modern art at art school, his first sighting of a McCahon, teaching at Elam with talented students like Karl Maughan and discovering the exciting young things today. Written in Dick’s self-proclaimed colloquial and relavatory style, this is a fascinating discussion of NZ art history.
