"The architectural paintings of Edward Rice are carefully rendered evocations of place, born of close familiarity and intense study. Informed by the continued absorption of outside influences, yet following his own self motivated path, Rice's work matured during the reemergence of a vigorous school of American realist painting. Although the development of the new realism made the critical climate more receptive to realist painting, Rice's anachronistic realism was largely untouched by the conceptual element of late modern art; it also lacked the irony, revivalism and media conciousness associated with Postmodernism."
