Stasia Rice

Artist

I am a Glasgow based Scottish artist and teacher. My pictures often bring viewers into a world of one colour. The outcomes are of still, hollow desolation, with wide rainy vistas where grasses are combed by the relentless wind. I carry a long narrow drawing board with paper to lonely places that catch my interest. This elongated format predominates in my drawings and Artist Books. The sound of the wind and of the red kites interrupt the hours of silence. I work mainly in carbon, pastels, erasers and watercolours using tone to make atmospheric effects such as in my Skye work “Clouds on Gabbro” and in my 16 sketches of the Lomond and Trossachs National Park series. In the past few years I have curated 2 exhibitions in the Mitchell Library and exhibited in the RSA and other open exhibitions. My art work is in public and private collections including Kelvingrove Museum (Needleworks Project), Glasgow School of Art Archives, Glasgow City Chambers Councillor’s Office, across Glasgow schools and community centers, UK and Canada.  I am a member of the Scottish Artists Union, SAU. My studio is in Glasgow. Stasia Rice; B.A. Hons, Glasgow School of Art (GSA) (1982) Post Grad, Hertfordshire College of Art (1984), Post Grad, Strathclyde Uni, 1990 & 1994, MPhil completed in 2008 (GSA grant), Chartered Teacher 2007.
