Dan Rizzie

Dan Rizzie’s (b. 1951, Poughkeepsie, New York) paintings, prints, and collages 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 depicts organic, geometric patterns. Regularly flattening the picture plane, Rizzie casts the viewer’s attention to the delicate lines and forms of his compositions. He also encrypts his work with many associations, whether obvious or mysterious, that relate to his personal history. Rizzie received his BFA from Hendrix College and his MFA from Southern Methodist University. He has exhibited throughout the country, and his artwork can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Dallas Museum of Fine Art, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art in Arizona, and others. Dan Rizzie currently resides in Sag Harbor, New York.
