About the Book
"Bob Rizzo Spirits, Shrines & Icons"
highlights a small sampling of the mixed media sculpture by self-taught artist Bob Rizzo.
About the work;
"Breaking out of the box entirely and standing over 5 feet tall, The Spirits by Bob Rizzo alludes to a more animistic religion and recalls African figurines or some similar African totem used to ward off evil spirits.
Constructed from and festooned with hundreds of found objects, there is something about the tactile quality of familiar objects that invokes the spiritual world."
