BRIAN RICE (1936- ) British abstract artist associated with the pop art movement who has had 35 solo exhibitions and around 200 group exhibitions. The 1960s was especially cool for those in the art world. The crowd around the Royal College of Art in London included David Hockney, Derek Boshier, Peter Blake, Joe Tilson and Allen Jones. Part of this group, one of the coolest of the cool, was painter and printmaker Brian Rice. During the 1960s Rice produced luminous, hard edged abstract paintings and prints, which achieved national and international publicity and acclaim, and quickly found their way into international collections. However by the mid 1970s disillusioned by both his output and the general art world, he retreated to the West Country and concentrated on his farming and his teaching.
