Leland Rice: Wall Site/Spray Booth, 1978
This limited-edition print was commissioned by the Prints and Drawings Council of LACMA.
Born in 1940, Rice studied photography at the Chouinard Art Institute (Los Angeles) and California State University, San Francisco. Wall Site/Spray Booth is from Rice’s "Wall Site" series of photographs which focused on the interiors of artist’s studios in Los Angeles and the remnants of human activity that survive the absence of the artist/maker. Beautifully composed into a tripartite arrangement, Wall Site/Spray Booth uses warm tonalities to evoke a mood of solitude and longing.
Established in 1965, The Prints and Drawings Council (PDC) supports the Prints and Drawings Department at LACMA. In addition to raising funds for acquisitions for the museum’s permanent collection, the PDC encourages collecting, scholarship, and appreciation in the field of original works of art on paper.
