            Dick Frizzell has reached iconic status in NZ u we love him, he's one of our own. Dick has a great story: After going to art school he found himself in his 20s married and with a young family to support. He worked in advertising until 1974, when his artistic urges made him leave ...the ad agency to take up working in the vege markets in the early hours of the day so that he could pursue his art. His paintings combined the pragmatics of an adman's need for a compelling motif with the visceral pleasures of expressive modernist paintings. His first images of gaudy fish-tin labels and comic strip characters caught everyone's imaginations. Dick's talent, energy and his deadpan humour meant that his art was highly successful. Dick Frizzell: The Painter contains all of his major paintings, the story of his life in his own thoughtful and highly articulate words, and an essay by Hamish Keith on Dick's work and its place in the New Zealand art world. And this paperback edition includes his latest paintings from the Rugby World Cup and from his collaboration with poet Sam Hunt.

            aHow does a gallery choose which artists it will represent? is a question I am sometimes asked, often by artists I have just rejected. There is no one answer, but a good guide in making a decision is who is recommending thema"what do their peers think of their work? aIt takes... one to know one,a is a truism and particularly apt in the case of artists. In the case of Peter Boggs, the recommendation came from an illustrious source, the late, great Margaret Olley. Olleyas praise was hard won, and not given lightly. She had a firm opinion on almost everything, but especially about what constituted a good painting and a good painter.a a" Philip Bacon, Owner of Philip Bacon Galleries (from the Foreword) aIn an age when time is measured in nanoseconds and information is conveyed in sound bites, Peter Boggsas art may appear as strangely anachronistic with its emphasis on timelessness and distilled beauty. His art is a triumph of slow art. His paintings are generally quite small, exquisitely crafted, with their tonality and geometry beautifully resolved. In them, everything has been specially arranged and re-arranged to the point that any further change would be to the detriment of the whole. There is something that is very intimate about his art, even diaristic, secretive and seductive, but there is no explicit narrative. The paintings are not about something, there is no obvious storyline, but at the same time they are very meaningful, they denote emotional and spiritual realities and they do this through visual and not verbal means. aI feel that his art taps into that which lies beyond the obvious, beyond the surface. Whereas the Surrealists quite often communicate this with a literary narrative, which they illustrate, Boggs communicates this through tonal means, visually exploiting sacred geometry. His is the art of avisuala rather than averbala intelligence. It is quiet and meditative and invites contemplation in search of spiritual enrichment.

            Sculptures of Melbourne explores major changes in the nature of public sculpture. When Melbourne was established, sculpture was heavily influenced by the colonial legacy of neo-classical bronze and marble statues. From 1980 onwards, public sculpture changed dramatically, not only... in style but in materials, location and sheer numbers. This book tells the story of how the shifting trends in public sculpture moved from a classical style, to commemorative, to a corporate modernist style, to being integrated into urban design, and finally evolving into a contemporary style, which is non-traditional and temporary. The history includes controversial modernist sculptures such as aThe Yellow Perila and unofficial laneway installation works. The book is written in an easy accessible style and is also a pictorial essay of Melbourneas sculptures. The Author: Mark S. Holsworth is a writer, art critic and artist who lives in Melbourne. He has written plays, short stories and authors a long-running blog: Black Mark a" Melbourne Art & Culture Critic. He studied philosophy and art history at Monash and LaTrobe universities, and has exhibited in several Melbourne galleries.
