DOTS: Dan Rizzie & Tom Judd
MM Fine Art is pleased to present DOTS: Tom Judd and Dan Rizzie, on view May 7 -21, with an opening reception Saturday, May 7, 6 to 8 PM.
With an artistic career that has been both broad-ranging and consistent over four decades, Sag Harbor artist DAN RIZZIE (b. 1951) is an internationally acclaimed American artist who has created a unique iconography of the natural world in paintings, collages, and prints. Known for his detailed collage work and the textural quality of his surfaces, Rizzie’s work is often influenced by the rhythms of the natural world and the artistic influences of his well- traveled youth. His work is included in the permanent collections of such eminent institutions as the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Parrish Art Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Scottsdale Museum of Art, among many others.
A native of Salt Lake City, the Philadelphia-based artist, TOM JUDD (b. 1952), has created an oeuvre over the last four decades characterized by its roots in Americana and the West. With landscapes that nuance lore and legend, or claim a geography or anonymous place, and may include object-relics, his work is discernibly unique within trends of the sublime in art. Inasmuch as Judd’s work is an extension of the long tradition of European Romanticism and nineteenth century American Sublime it runs askew of those conventional modes.
Judd has gone onto exhibit his work in distinguished commercial galleries and Museums across the country. He is in major collections, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Pennsylvania Academy of Art and the Birmingham Museum of Art.
Judd works in a variety of medium including painting, collage, photography and installation work. This includes major public art projects such as the Independence Hall subway station in Philadelphia.
