Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Rieger uses wood to make figurative works. As a material it evokes a sense of familiarity and then formally he can release a complexity through its technical manipulation. He makes each form to be simultaneously seductive and repulsive. The process involved in making each object informs on itself as he goes. They start with a basic armature informed by figurative compositions he has in his sketchbook. Then through an additive and subtractive process, of carving and re-gluing, that is informed by people and objects in his current life, the sculptures materialize.

Artist Profile

Born: 1984

Hometown: Pittsburgh

Based in: New York

Douglas Rieger's work is aggressive and languid, utilitarian and abstract. It has a perversity, and humor giving it a muddy sexuality that blends the body and the mechanism. The works are not meant to fit a logic, they are a dialogue between machine and operator.

Douglas Rieger (b. 1984, Pittsburgh PA) lives and works in New York, NY. He received his MFA from Yale in 2016 and BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2008. Rieger’s work has been exhibited at Helena Anrather Gallery (New York, NY), Thierry Goldberg Gallery (New York, NY), 67 Ludlow Gallery (New York, NY), 1708 Gallery (Richmond, VA), E.Tay Gallery (New York, NY), Parallelogram Gallery (Tampa, FL).
