This exhibition celebrates the abstract work of the distinguished West Country artist, Brian Rice.
This exhibition includes his paintings and prints created over the last 60 years, such as the vibrant multi-canvas painting Green Cross, from his formative 1960s London period.
In the 1960s Brian Rice was at the heart of the creative and groundbreaking 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 1920s and 30s. These formative London years from 1962-1978, strengthened Rice’s conviction in abstract work and saw his reputation grow.
