The Artist - Geoffrey Rice

A closet Cornishman, Geoffrey Rice has been maintaining a low profile in the Westcountry for nigh on 70 years. Short lived 'careers' in forestry, catering, landscape gardening and deckchair administration have all been grist to the mill for this hard- bitten autodidact which, with hallmark cynicism, has turned a blinkered ( but reverential) eye on the inspirational landscape around him. Instead he has drawn succour from the absurd, the humdrum, and the occasional erotic in modern life. Spasmodic outbursts of creativity have produced sundry works of an idiosyncratic nature: fanciful wood carved pub signs, anthropomorphic stones, bas-relief plaster images and paintings. Various exhibitions have done little to extend his reputation beyond the small coterie of local cognoscenti who, although loyal and enthusiastic, live in fear of spontaneous, unsolicited gifting!
