"It’s A Closed System — I Would Know You Anywhere"
Amy Rice, "It’s A Closed System — I Would Know You Anywhere."
October 2010, View Art Gallery, Victoria
There’s a folksy quality to Amy Rice’s prints — they fit perfectly into the red-hot Etsy-fuelled art and design market that underpins our current culture. Rice began making the prints — mixed-media collages on found objects — to help fund her organic farm operation in Wisconsin. When the prints outsold the produce, she sold the farm and moved to Minneapolis to make art full time. Rice has her Canadian debut show at Victoria’sView Art Gallery in October.
