Culver City, CA – LeBasse Projects is proud to announce ‘Spectrum,’ new works from Nate Frizzell. The Los Angeles based artist returns to the gallery for his first solo show of oil paintings since 2011.
For this exhibition Frizzell continues his exploration of self-discovery through the study of the materials that he works with. The show will feature a series of large-scale oil paintings each focusing on a single color from his limited palette – in turn making up the full spectrum. With this, Frizzell aims to create an immersive setting for the viewer where each painting tells it’s own story while exploring what feelings are traditionally evoked by the represented tones.
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.”
The end result is a series of large paintings that both literally and figuratively represent the artist’s full palette that he has used since he first picked up a brush. After his previous shows opened so successfully this exhibition will undoubtedly be one of the more anticipated of the season’s openings.
