Jason Frizzell
Biography

Jason Frizzell holds a Diploma in Art and Design from Red Deer College, a BFA from the University of Calgary and a MFA from the University of Victoria. Jason has been a RDC faculty member since 1998, teaching in the areas of Drawing, Visual Fundamentals, Printmaking, and Sculpture and was Dean of the School of Creative Arts until 2019. He has exhibited prints, drawings, and sculpture nationally and internationally and was included in the 2015 Alberta Biennial at the Art Gallery of Alberta.

 

Frizzell’s exploration of undefined narratives and uncertain relationships are rendered in 1:87 scale. The sculptural dioramas feature imaginary environments, architectural spaces, and miniature tableaus that explore themes of isolation, transition, denial and discovery.
