I offer digital reproductions giclée prints on archival quality acid-free 310g, Bright White, water-resistant velvet fine art paper; from very high resolution photos (1 GB) and produced on high-performance printers using pigment-based inks providing a print life exceeding 200+ yrs, if framed under glass. Unlike the original canvas, the reproductions are not thick. However we can see the texture of the originals because the high definition photo captures these details.
All of my limited edition prints are hand-signed and numbered by me, the artist and come with a certificate of authenticity. Art is the activity that occurs in the space that exists between a viewer’s eyes and the object I've created. It is the interaction between the collective experiences in your brain as you process the way I have chosen to express the collective experiences in my brain. It is only when this exchange takes place that my work becomes Art
My process and technique developed from a two and half year psychosis. I found myself staring at reflections, the more uneven the surface the better. This technique I refer to as Ambiguous Delusions. I wanted to bring the viewer into the painting. By painting distinct shapes of color, the viewers sub conscience and conscience mind had to deconstruct and reconstruct the fragments of color into something the viewer recognized.. It is the viewer that blends the color, not the artist. The viewer brings to this process their own perspective, their life experiences and history. Each viewer sees the image differently, and creates there own Ambiguous Delusion
Donald Rizzo is an artist who sees the world through fragments; fragments of color, fragments of memory, fragments of space, and fragments of who people really are. His works are kaleidoscopic visions of vibrant color which stem from his dark personal experience dealing with depression with psychotic symptoms. Donald is nothing short of being his truest self and showcasing his unique eye that allows his viewers to create their own reality of what they see in his images. His selected awards include; in 2015 winning the Four Points Contemporary 4th Bi-annual Juried International Art Competition for his work “Looking” and an Award of Excellence for “Gazzoni”. Donald’s work has been published in International Contemporary Artists Vol 10. His paintings have been featured in international Gay Lifestyle magazines including EGF and the City 2015 and Mate magazine, Spring 2014. He is represented by leading male figurative gallery, Gallery XO in Wilton Manors FL. donald-rizzo.com
