la Danza

Lou Rizzolo's avatar Lou Rizzolo

Artist Statement: Lou Rizzolo Creating from the human figure remains my greatest challenge of all subject matter because the artist must connect with live organic energies. Automatically factored into the process for authenticity and integrity includes understanding the nature of the brush, its fibers and the charge of paint, the mix of color, knowing the structures of the figure, composing spacial relationships within the figure and figure to background relationships, the attitudinal dimensions, the moisture of the paper and the direction, rhythm, economy and intensity of each stroke, the pace of the painting/printing process and considering all compositional principles and potentials. As a water media mono-print with wash and graphite, la Danza (40" x 26") uniquely interprets the internal energy sources of figurative movement.
