Dick Frizzell’s work incorporates a seemingly infinite range of styles, genres, and subject matter. Drawing on previous experience in commercial art, Frizzell creates paintings that incorporate modern art, graphic design, and advertising imagery as their base. Frizzell's paintings juxtapose high and low art, pairing highly skilled renderings with unexpected subjects, like junk mail, product packaging, and comic book illustrations. From cartoon-like, faux-naive depictions of his native landscape to figurative still lifes, Frizzell presents a new perspective of banal subject matter through ironic humor and wit. Also working in lithographs, Frizzell once illustrated a figure that transformed from the face of Mickey Mouse to a tiki head, an icon of Cubism and Art Deco.
