Edward Rice
Fortress II

About

This painting is from a series based on Fort Frederica on Saint Simon's Island, Georgia. Fort Frederica was built by James Oglethorpe between 1736 and 1748 to protect the southern boundary of the British colony of Georgia from Spanish raids. Painted on a dark dramatic background, Fort Frederica has been distilled to its essence. It has become a symbol. It is a model on a stage set. Through this series, Edward Rice is using the inanimate object to explore how scale, light, color and medium can evoke distinct personalities. Edward Rice was born in 1953 in Augusta, GA, and raised in North Augusta, SC. He was protégé of Freeman Schoolcraft from 1972-1979 and Director/Artist in Residence at the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, Augusta from 1979-1982. The artist is the recipient of a South Carolina Arts Commission Artist Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts/Southern Arts Federation Regional Fellowship, and the Elizabeth O'Neil Verner Governor's Award. His work is housed in the permanent collections of the Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston, South Carolina; the Columbia Museum of Art, South Carolina; the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, Georgia; the Morris Museum of Art, Augusta, Georgia; and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, Louisiana.
