Many of you will have heard of this artist. His website tells you that his work is “about human frailty – wrestling the insecure desire for fame and fortune and the quest for a contented heart”. His works touch on the fragility and the loneliness that is a part of living. You might remember his solitary caravans? Or his isolated, dead trees? What about his flying man? We’ve had a print of ‘The Messenger II’ on our wall for many years now, and there’s a quirkiness and a sadness in it that compels you to take a longer look at it. Even now.
He paints, he sculpts, he’s a printmaker. He focuses on the daily grind of life, the back streets, back yards, the rundown shops, the neglected and forgotten spaces that were once something to someone. In these things, he finds beauty.
So ladies and gentlemen, let’s please give David Frazer a warm welcome to the 2012 Biblio-Art competition! Here’s a link to his website, so you can peruse his works yourself. http://www.dfrazer.com/main.html
