FRIDAY 11th NOVEMBER 2016 - CARDBOARD & COMPUTERS A Perfect Storm of Pop-ART Multimedia Collaboration Otis Frizzell & Mike Weston, with Tom Ludvigson \\ New Paintings. New Limited Edition prints
Plus a Video Installation & Vinyl Release
Weston Frizzell brings you another exceptional exhibition, but with a twist - they've (was just a matter of time) produced a very special 12 inch release, a first for the pop-art duo, alongside 20 new paintings and a hot new limited edition print + vinyl package. The song is what one can only describe as a genre slam of electro vapour-wave salsa metal and has informed the entire exhibition, oozing nostalgia in a 1980's misspent youth kinda way. The familiar heavy painterly impasto icky-ness of the paint that Weston Frizzell layers and seemingly sculpts in the process brings an ironic human connectivity to the subject matter. Pacman, Trump, jackpot cherries, the peoples flag, spray cans, skulls and ghoulish smiley faces painted in heavily textured pixelated icons, and found throughout the installation actually pixelated in an L.E.D 8 bit homage to a hypnotic degree.
This show is both a shocking reminder of the times, and a sweet screaming guitar lick to the face of days gone by. If you need a wee cuddle to slap you out of a post election catatonic malay, swing on by! more info here Image credit: John Gregory Payne
You may have seen Elliot Francis Stewart painting a billboard sized canvas in the Lot23 studio for a live streamed facebook event last week.
