A rare chance to sample a selection of work from Brian Rice's own personal collection.
Brian Rice's career covers a period of remarkable dedication and innovation as an accomplished painter and printmaker. He was born in 1936 in Yeovil, Somerset and studied at Yeovil School of Art from 1952-56 and then Goldsmiths College, London from 1958-59. Rice’s formative years as an artist were in London during the 1960s where he was very much part of the ‘swinging’ art scene that included David Hockney, Peter Blake, Joe Tilson, Allen Jones and Derek Boshier. During this period, the paintings and prints he produced formed part of the zeitgeist and appeared in fashion shoots, set designs and TV commercials. His work, which achieved national and international publicity and acclaim, quickly found its way into worldwide collections.
