Wal Sculptures

Artist Statement

Thanks for your interest in Dan Rider Sculpture. I have been creating unique wall compositions and contemporary outdoor sculpture for over 30 years. I was influenced early in my career by the abstract sculpture works of Isamu Noguchi, Louise Nevelson, and later on by Stephen De Staebler. My clients have installed many of my contemporary cast stone Totems to mark their landscapes with a unique focal point. Signature recurring themes involve representational botanical wall mounted compositions (roses, callas,+ barley), with hand formed/cold connected layers of perforated metal elements in several stained colors. I have a successful history collaborating with collectors, designers, landscape architects, and art consultants on a variety of commissions. My contemporary sculpture is readily adaptable to both commercial and residential use, indoor and outdoor landscape spaces, and can be found in galleries, private collections, corporate offices, and health care institutions.

Current gallery representation of Dan Rider Sculpture is on display at  Desert Art Collection, Palm Desert, CA.

"Dan Rider's body of work has another-world feel, but, at the same time, is deeply rooted in nature."
