Stasia Rice

Artist

I am a Glasgow based Scottish artist and teacher. I studied at Glasgow School of Art (GSA) (1982) followed by a Post Grad at Hertfordshire College of Art (1984) and later an  MPhil completed in 2008 again at GSA funded by a GSA grant. I was very lucky to study under James Robertson and Neil Dallas Brown with Sandy Moffat’s influence, but I also learned just as much from my fellow students. My artworks are largely in monochrome, in an elongated format, made on location as romantic landscapes which also hold atmosphere and convey mood.  To achieve light effects I work mainly in carbon, pastels, erasers and watercolours. You can see these atmospheric effects in my Skye work Clouds on Gabbro and in my 16 sketches of the Lomond and Trossachs National Park series. Much of my art draws on social and physical geography including maps for which I received a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship. Social issues such as gentrification or closures or fracking annoy me enough to make me try to use art as propaganda to highlight local issues often collaborating with the public, recognised with awards from Paul Hamlyn Trust and Gulbenkian Foundation. In the past few years I have also curated 2 exhibitions in the Mitchell Library. My parallel work briefly as an Art Therapist (St Albans), as a teacher from Glasgow University- shifting very early on into the highly dynamic field of Additional Support Needs.  I feel absolutely privileged to have enabled and created access to art for all young people. For several years I worked for the GTC on their Chartered Teacher Programme. 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 centres, UK and Canada.  I am a member of the Scottish Artists Union. My studio is in Glasgow. Please contact me if you want to blether at  Website Website
