David Frazer’s exhibition HUG at fortyfivedownstairs will not only showcase recent prints and paintings but also launch his latest handmade artist book little aches and pains in collaboration with singer songwriter Paul Kelly. This book was made completely in the old fashioned way, using wood engravings, letterpress and was hand bound, with words by Paul Kelly.
It becomes the perfect marriage between Kelly’s narrative based songs and Frazer’s narrative based art. In fact Frazer at one time tried to be a song writer only to become a karaoke act, he now approaches his art with the mindset of a songwriter.
