The Big Art Trip - Series Two, Episode Five

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2002

In this leg of The Big Art Trip, hosts Fiona McDonald and Douglas Lloyd-Jenkins drive through Hawke’s Bay and catch up with artist Dick Frizzell to discuss landscape painting and his Phantom comic series. Then they’re off to Napier to meet musician Paul McLaney and his co-producer David Holmes, who explain their song production techniques. Painter and ceramic artist Martin Poppelwell shares his art, Douglas describes art deco and modernist architecture and they head south to nearby Waipawa to meet potter Helen Mason and painter Gary Waldrom.

What you’re hoping for is a line of inquiry that’s so engrossing you forget you’re making art. All you’re doing is making stuff and people call it art as it piles behind you.
– Dick Frizzell
