dan rizzie


Dan Rizzie’s (b. 1951) prints, collages, and paintings reflect the artist’s deep respect for the natural world. His representational artwork often incorporates recognizable symbols of flora and fauna such as plants, birds, and vine tendrils. Reiterating these themes, his more abstract art adopts organic, geometric patterns. Rizzie regularly flattens the picture plane and provides little depth. This casts the viewer’s full attention on the delicate line and form in his shapes. In his printmaking, Rizzie utilizes several techniques for a single print including woodcut, lithography, relief, collage, and chine collé. Rizzie has exhibited throughout the country and his artwork can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Dallas Museum of Fine Art, and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art in Arizona as well as prestigious private and corporate collections. – Tandem Press
