PK Frizzell: Evidence of Things Unseen

October 2012

"Evidence of Things Unseen" (2012) installation: mixed media lights and lenses 6 ft x 8 ft x 3 ft.

In a new installation PK Frizzell uses text, plant materials, and discarded broken objects to explore the nature of mind and memory. The installation is viewed through a grid of lenses creating a vast and dizzying world. In a second body of work, Frizzell shows us a place where the spiritual intersects with the material by overlaying viscerally physical surfaces made of studio detritus with shadow images imbedded in glass.

PK Frizzell graduated from the art program at UC Berkeley in the late sixties having studied with Pete Voulkos, Jim Melchert, and Ron Nagle. Later she established a ceramics studio and showed work throughout the US and parts of Asia and was included in History of American Ceramics by foremost ceramic art historian Elaine Levin. She has participated extensively in juried and invitational American Craft Council shows and competitions. Recently, Frizzell has explored and developed new media and methods of producing two and three dimensional work using paper, paint, x-rays, photographs, lenses and digital manipulation of visual information. PK Frizzell has shown with Mercury 20 Gallery since 2010.
