Art Description

Photography: Color, Digital, Ink, Photo on Canvas, Wood, Paper.

The original 'Nine Drives' is an abstract celebration of multiple automobiles in one 3 x 3 matrix of color, texture, light and personality. Each original individual photographic image is 12 x 12 x 1.5" and assembled together floating in a 40 x 40 " black frame.

Each photographic image expresses the artists abstract perception, interpretation and individuality of the machine. Together they create a pictorial expression and emotional comparison of the love of automobile design in all of its beauty and diversity.

This is a beautiful colorful collection of nine original automobile photographs as seen through the lens and eyes of automobile photographer Ron Rizzi. The original work features 9 individual 12 x 12 x 1.5 gallery wrapped canvas prints mounted and framed in a three dimensional presentation. Presented here in a matrix of color and abstract shapes on a single photo paper or fine art print of your choice, framed in black or white and ready to hang.

Artist Statement - Ron Rizzi

The first camera I ever had the pleasure of being introduced to was a Brownie 120 Roll Camera. It was fascinating loading the unexposed film on a metal roll from spindle to spindle. In the sixties growing up a Kodak Instamatic was a popular tool that boasted fixed focus and aperture settings. Limited yes by many standards, but the photo was always in the eye of the beholder.

Later in the sixties and the early seventies working in a photography shop as a teen came an exposure to the Nikon 35mm camera system. A Nikkor lens brought a sense of nirvana to taking a photo. My love for automobiles and rock music came to the center of my focus. Attending a rock concert toting a Nikkormat FTn, a few lenses and rolls of Ektachrome became a personal passion. Classic cars, car shows, endurance and formula one racing, American LeMans, Watkins Glen, and Road Atlanta were favorite spots.

“Hello”said a Macintosh, Page Maker, Photo Shop and Illustrator fueling a new excitement that leveraged a kids dream miles further to take a picture and print it on a laser printer. The passion rekindled into a career in computers, graphics and high tech for more than two decades. Acquired skills, love and an eye in four thirds matured with each introduction to new technical tools that made the photographic process an adventure and a creative instantaneous revolution.

These days 35mm has become an antique medium and even a digital SLR seems large and cumbersome in light of the convenience of a smartphone. One thing still remains the same. Cars and a good cup of coffee are still the essence of life!
