As an Artist

After he dropped out of high school at the age of 17, he began a comprehensive study into early 20th-century art movements, producing his own abstract black and white paintings and experimental photographs.

Early on in this study, he met European art historian and gallery owner, Arturo Schwarz, with whom he got into a long correspondence.

Schwarz, who was a biographer of Duchamp and Man Ray, encouraged Rice to pursue his art, no matter what, which is just what Rice did. Although he would later move his focus to sound, he has never stopped creating visual art and has put on a number of one man shows over the years.
