Tomorrow night (January 12th), the LeBasse Projects in Culver City will be presenting all new works from Nate Frizzell (interviewed). Spectrum will be his first solo showing of oil paintings since 2011 (covered) and as the title suggests, each painting will be focusing on a single color from his palette – in turn making up the full color range. Along with the originals, a special limited edition box set (seen below) of each of the eight paintings in the exhibition will be released. There will only be 50 boxes produced – with 8 being designated to go with each of the original oil paintings – leaving only 42 available for sale. Each box will be on pre-order for $1500 and be available at the end of the exhibition.
About the new body of work Frizzell suggests: “For this show, aside from wanting to develop a cohesive body of work on a larger scale, I wanted to see what I’m able to do with the space and see how size can affect the subject matter and how I am able to represent it. I have always used a very limited palette and I wanted to sort of tell the story of each color that I use and explore what they mean traditionally as well as the feelings they evoke in me. I wanted each painting to have an obvious focus on a single color, but have all the other colors incorporated as well. While one is the star, it’s not complete without the others.”
