                                                      John Rice

John was born in Paintsville Kentucky and has a Bachelor of Science Degree from East Tennessee State University.  As an abstract expressionist, his major influences are Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko.

While constantly exploring new technique with color, texture and application; He strives to have a relationship with lack of canvas and gives himself over to letting the work take on its own identity.

“If the viewer has a moment of reflection and connects with the painting, it becomes more than just a material object: It becomes a memory and a small part of everything.”
