"Standing outside fashionable movements and convenient labels, Rice has pursued his own understanding of colour and abstract iconography, informed by the legacy of ancient signs and shapes in a modern world. He has and continues to demonstrate the unique ability of printmaking to re-appraise and re-new imagery." Tessa Sidey - Curator, Prints and Drawings, Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery
