About The Artwork

ALTERATION ART . . . is a collaboration process between Rick Wolfryd, fine artist and art dealer with over 40 years experience, and various Mexican Huichol artists and Mexican Huichol art studios that Rick has been drawn to, after 10 plus years of living in Mexico. Rick’s main focus currently involves engaging and fabricating with the Huichol style Mexican glass beadwork in order to create altered vision and collectible fine art through beadwork application and effect. For Rick, who has been experimenting with photoshopped pixelizations on the computer for the past 20 years, there is a sublime similarity between pixel content and beadwork application . . . both relying on geometry and dot patterns effect to create special imagery. On an aesthetic cross comparison level, Rick also has experimented with abstract anthropomorphic drawings and patterns in his earliest manual printed and drawn works . . . which later became evident in his typed illustrations and forays into pixelized computer art. Glass beads on steroids for 2023 . . . is how Rick refers to his current work . . . The project of ALTERATION has in mind to respectfully help the Huichol community grow and prosper and be more well-known and recognized throughout the art world . . .

Born in Newport Beach, CA in 1953 --- Rick Wolfryd is a multi-dimensional artist & writer who has spent much of his lifetime developing his unique cultural vision and word craft outside of mainstream art experience. According to Carole Lieff, Santa Barbara-based art dealer and friend of the artist, "I have known Rick Wolfryd for almost 20 years. Rick has always been a maverick artist --- and art dealer; a renegade. Nothing has changed. He will not hew to many of the stale conventions ( and pretensions ) that seem to drive the art ( and literature ) markets. Rick creates his ‘Outsider Works’ empirically ( although he holds BS and MFA degrees ), while discovering new parts of himself and his art as he goes along. Recently, Rick has produced the finest creative works, I believe, of his lifetime . . . and it is honest, speculative work.” Currently residing in Mexico City since Summer of 2009, Rick is working simultaneously on his fine art drawings, photography, poetry, and “digital and ideological reconstructions” ( terminology he uses to describe his most recent computer generated art work ). In 1998, Rick was Sotheby’s 8th largest client in the world for buying/selling/trading contemporary prints and --- to his credit --- Rick also created and co-founded one of the world’s most successful, independent Contemporary Fine Art galleries based in Los Angeles, CA --- Wolfryd-Selway Fine Art ( currently Hamilton-Selway Fine Art ).
