Neil Rizos: The Art of Exploration

We were pleased to present Neil Rizos: The Art of Exploration on display from September 15 – January 7, 2018. The exhibit featured over fifty works of art depicting birds, reflecting Neil Rizos’ life-long exploration of art and nature. Rizos works in a variety of media, including bronze sculptures, paintings, drawings, pastels, etchings, lithographs and woodcuts.

For more than 25 years, Rizos has pursued his interest in birds, art and the natural world. He has travelled widely, participating in bird research projects with public and private agencies in North America and Europe. In 2016, he was invited to Austria to observe the European Union’s Northern Bald Ibis reintroduction program. He has been recognized with numerous awards and artist residencies, and his work is in notable private and public collections internationally, including the United States Library of Congress.

Speaking of his recent work, Rizos says, “Birds are the starting point of my artistic journey. Although the species are often recognizable, my purpose is not to copy appearances. Rather, my intention is to make my personal, interior experience visible in a way that engages the viewer deeply; moving through form into that which cannot be grasped, only experienced.”
