D’Metrius John Rice

   Born in 1981 in Silver Spring, MD, I make work that is derived from a drawing process which makes editorial decisions in a minimally mediated present tense.  Work is inspired by questions arising from the human condition and psychology, as well as spatial relationships and anomalies in mathematics.  There is a tendency to render unclear or problematic ideas in simple and elemental ways to clearly define self-imposed parameters and problems.  There are cultural and social references which act more as props, having a different value than their appearance would indicate, often an abbreviation, symbol or stand in.
