Artist Spotlight: Cindy Rizza

Cindy Rizza is a classically trained, representational oil painter based in Southern New Hampshire. Conjuring conflicting feelings of comfort and insecurity, shelter and confinement, and love and loss, Rizza’s formal presentations of everyday domestic objects ask questions about whether these material comforts keep us safe or more vulnerable.  

Her recent works—delicate renderings of solitary domestic heirlooms—are set against backdrops of untamed New Hampshire landscapes, capturing a spirit of contradiction: of manmade forms created for comfort vs. the wildness of nature, “reminding us of greater forces at work than our palliative attempts at control.” Ultimately, Rizza explains, “we are all vulnerable to worldly forces outside our nests.”
