About Rie Munoz
Brightly colored figures, expansive landscapes, and a carefree sense of whimsy and joy pervades the work of Alaskan artist Rie Munoz. Munoz is known throughout the art world for her dedication to depicting the everyday life of Alaska without inserting any sort of extra heaviness, the sort that all too often accompanies artistic ventures. Thus, her work is able to capture the effortlessness of childhood play, in more than just her child subjects. Often, everything from the way that the wind teases through the trees to the sun's dancing on the water reflects Munoz's refreshing style. Many of her landscapes are populated by small towns and families out at play, with figures that are simply larger than life in their exuberance. However, her dedication to joy never seems facile, and her pieces thus retain a sense of realism and believability, as far as the stylistic elements are concerned. You can find plenty of examples of Munoz's work on sale in the large inventory on eBay, where an impressive catalog of her creations are displayed. Rie Munoz continues to find her way into the hearts of Alaskans and Americans with her work.
