Brian Rice: 60 years of Paintings and Prints at RAMM

About

A celebration of the abstract work of the distinguished West Country artist Brian Rice. Work includes his vibrant multi-form painting ‘Green Cross’, from his formative 1960's London period, ‘Dowth’, with its European rock art influence and later work ‘Horton Rock’, 2008 with its lyrical and mischievous twirling lines. Also exhibited will be objects, textiles and books from the artist’s personal collection that have been important to the development of his work.

Brian Rice studied at Yeovil School of Art and Goldsmiths College, becoming very active in London during the 1960s before moving to the west of England in the 70s where his interest in ancient cultures influenced his work. In the 1960’s Brian Rice was at the heart of the creative and ground breaking London Art Scene and a part of the crowd of artists associated with the Royal College of art such as David Hockney and Peter Blake. Brian Rice’s abstract paintings from this period were influenced by the De Stiji group and European Constructivists of the 1920’s and 30’s. These formative London years from 1962-1978, strengthened Rice’s conviction in abstract work and saw his reputation grow.

His paintings and prints have been featured in almost 200 group exhibitions and 35 solo exhibitions. The exhibition includes Odeon, a 1969 screen print gifted to RAMM through the Art Fund, ‘Dowth’, with its European rock art influence and later work ‘Horton Rock’, 2008 with its lyrical and mischievous twirling lines. Also exhibited will be objects, textiles and books from the artist’s personal collection that have been important to the development of his work.
