Andrew Rice has always called the Rocky Mountain West region his home. Born in Aspen, CO, he received his BFA in printmaking from the University of Colorado in Boulder and his MFA in Salt Lake City, UT at the University of Utah, where he currently teaches printmaking. Through a variety of print processes, paint stick drawings, and collage, Rice’s work investigates the use and occupation of space. How we have a need to carve out a space of our own, no matter our environment. Rice has exhibited his work widely at national and international venues including the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, CUAC (Central Utah Art Center), the Holter Museum of Art in Helena, MT, 2nd Kaunas International Printmaking Biennial (Kaunas, Lithuania), IMPACT 9 China Academy of Art (Hangzhou, China), Krakow International Print Triennial – Falun, Sweden, “Iosif Iser” International Contemporary Print Biennial, Prohova County Art Museum (Romania), and had most recently shown at God Hates Robots gallery and Utah Museum of Fine Arts in Salt Lake City.
