Exhibiting Artist: Amy Rice

For artist Amy Rice, artistic inspiration comes as much from childhood memories of growing up on a Midwestern farm as it does the urban community in which she now lives. From bicycles and street art to gardening and “things with wings”, her influences at first sight look to merely be pulled from everyday experiences and encounters, but her art also speaks to influences less tangible as well. Amy’s colorful imagery touches on the human experience as it draws from “collective endeavors that challenge hierarchy, acts of compassion, [and] downright silliness”.

As a starting point for her original pieces, Amy uses nontraditional print-making methods, including hand cut stencils and prints made using the compact Japanese Gocco machine which creates prints similar to screenprinting. These pieces become truly of mixed media when Amy employs the use of enamel spray paint, acrylics, gouache, and inks to create layers on a variety of surfaces including wood, fabric and antique papers (preferring handwritten love letters, envelopes, journal pages, sheet music and maps).

About the Artist
Amy Rice is a mixed media artist based out of Minneapolis who has had group and solo exhibitions in galleries throughout the US, Canada, and in the UK. Her nostalgic, subtly street art-influenced works are deeply defined by her Midwestern roots. Growing up in a rural area, Rice found inspiration in the surrounding flora and fauna; she naturally developed an intrinsic appreciation for the simplistic yet beautiful things in life. Rice is most satisfied when a tangible or visceral connection is built between the materials used and the image rendered. Her work is deeply layered, often both literally and figuratively. Her evocative, wistful imagery is largely biographical and reflective of her pensive nature.
