We’re joined by RMCAD Alumni and fine artist Dalton Frizzel. We talk about careful news consumption, the story behind his #blessed piece, tattooing, the journey to graduate school, what to expect when pursuing a master’s degree, stealing from your influences, and studious readings like “Out of the Closet and Into the Universe: Queers and Star Trek” by Henry Jenkins. A special shoutout goes to Martha Neth in RMCAD’s Hugh Thurlow Memorial Library for finding the article so that we could share it with all of you!
(b. 1993) Frizzell makes work challenging the dogmas of Christianity. The work ranges
from sculpture and painting to metalworking and performance. Frizzell invokes scientific
and philosophical considerations against specific beliefs, using materials appropriate to
each concept. He grew up in Colorado Springs, also known as the “Evangelical
Vatican.” He is currently pursuing his MFA at University of Colorado-Boulder.
