“Digital Patchwork” @ Model Call Salon

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

My new pieces are now hanging at Model Call Salon, Hillcrest, San Diego. “Digital Patchwork” is the title of the show featuring new work inspired by American folk art, Quilts, and nature. Based on original drawings, the compositions are colored digitally, printed on canvas with archival ink, then framed or mounted on boards. The salon lights up with the infusion of color! J Frizza

Lápices y Píxeles / Pencils & Pixels – The Work of Julio Pompa Frizza @ CAV / Museo del Barro, Asunción, Paraguay

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

I have the honor to be exhibiting at the Centro de Artes Visuales / Museo del Barro, the main contemporary and folkloric art museum in Paraguay. The show, titled Pencils & Pixels –Lápices y Píxeles­– is a retrospective view at my digital work from 2003 to 2013. The pieces are drawings colored with the computer and digital collages. The overview includes more than 20 prints on paper or canvas, shown in glass cases, and a slide show projection of about 50 images, in the Florian Paucke room.

The Museo del Barro houses an extraordinary art collection of pre columbian, colonial and indigenous art from Paraguay and Latin America. In addition, the museum focuses on popular and contemporary Paraguayan art. Several rooms are dedicated to contemporary art exhibitions. The gift shop is fantastic, they feature a great selection of local art for sale.

The opening night was a great success, a party with family and friends, enjoying traditional Paraguayan food, an inspiring and unforgettable night in Asunción.

If you happen to be in Paraguay, the heart of South America, stop by the museum, the show will be open until the end of June 2013. J Frizza

Digital Patchwork

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

I really like the new Illustrator pattern tool. It makes pattern creation so easy and simple. Here are details of a larger piece I created, using several patterns made with that tool.The base of the patterns are original drawings, scanned and traced, combined into a digital patchwork. J Frizza

I’m sharing here, a few details of a piece finished a short while ago: “On the chair,” pencil on paper and digital media. Enjoy! J Frizza

Dreamer

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

Here is a detail of a large piece I’m working on. “Dreamer” is a digital collage with drawings and patterns, still in the works. However, I’ve gotten to a point where I really like the piece, yet is not finished at all. I’m torn, because I love the freshness of the casual and hurried composition, and I don’t want to loose that feeling. Technology though, allows me to record and save every stage of the process… I love computers! J Frizza

Foreclosure

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Southern California is beautiful. Even at this time of economic uncertainty and transition, the neighborhood is an abundant source of inspiration. The dramatic ‘Foreclosure,’ ‘Bank Owned,’ and ‘Sale’ signs stand solemn in perfectly manicured and trimmed yards, in front of ghostly empty houses. This American dream has become a nightmare for some. The vacation weather, the quintessential California palm tree, the perfectly cleaned street seam out of place in such sad scenario. Though change is good, the organic urban web still regenerates and thrives. Here is another digital ‘impression’ of my neighborhood. J Frizza

The Nursery

Three samples from a series of digital patchworks titled “The Nursery.”  These images were made combining patterns, drawings, scanned newspapers and junk mail. Delightful organic forms multiply in the fertile and prolific cyber green garden. J Frizza
