WE ARE WHAT WE PRETEND TO BE
by Nate Frizzell (2015)
BONIFACIO HIGH STREET TIMEZONE PORTAL, LANE O
Who we are at work. How we act around friends and family. The way we speak to our lovers. We are all of these and none of these, a revolving collection of faces. Of masks. These meditations inform the work of Nate Frizzell. Lovingly rendered through bold colors and powerful compositions, his stirring narratives pay tribute to primal emotions of the wild at heart. Juxtaposing man and beast, nature and urban landscapes, Nate's subjects convey the quest for identity, the fire of innermost desires, and the unbridled passion of youth. They portray faces hidden but emotions nakedly exposed.
