RICK BECK Biography

By using a fragile material to represent items usually regarded as sturdy and nearly indestructible, glass artist Rick Beck creates an interesting balance and contradiction in his work. Whether depicting figures or everyday objects, Beck creates a fascinating distortion to our sense of scale and form.

Beck received his BA degree from Hastings College (NE) and his MFA degree from Southern Illinois University. His work is in the collections of the Mint Museum of Craft + Design (NC), the Wustum Museum of Fine Art (WI), the Ogden Museum of Southern Art (LA), the Asheville Art Museum (NC) and the Columbia Museum of Art (SC). Rick currently works from his studio in Western North Carolina.

RICK BECK Statement

“I am interested in playing volumes of mass against details by extracting and exaggerating the things I find interesting. Ultimately the work should challenge the eye and the mind.”
