RICK BIEHL — Bio.

Born in the steel belt near Pittsburgh, PA in 1946 – I was interested in expressing myself at an early age – crayons, colored pencils and modeling clay were my tools of choice during the formative years.

After studying art in high school, I was a full-time art school student throughout the mid to late-’60s. There, among other disciplines, I studied illustration, painting, design and photography.

As a career artist, beginning in the late-’60s, I worked for thirty-five years as a commercial artist and art director for a number of companies. Some were small and some not so small – the last 21 years with a Fortune 100 company. Over the years I received a number of industry awards for print, exhibit and photographic work.

During the ’80s, in addition to working as a commercial artist, I was represented by a number of art galleries in DC, Virginia and Maryland. During those years of gallery exposure I was mainly interested in printmaking – specifically serigraphy. Throughout that period I was fortunate enough to have had steady gallery sales, works purchased by institutions, received corporate commissions and purchase awards. The Washington Post featured my work in an article during that period. Reluctantly I gave up printmaking in the late-’80s because of the health hazards involved with petroleum-based printing inks.

Beginning in the ’90s, and to the present, I continue to work two and three-dimensionally with various mediums. At some point in the mid-’90s I decided to explore tweeking 2-D into 3-D, maybe influenced by Johns and Rauschenberg's earlier "combine" works. During this same period, the mid-’90s, I was also designing exhibits and this obviously fed into my 3-D thinking. Routinely, for presentation, I would build 3-D scale models of my exhibit designs.

I'm currently represented by galleries in Charlotte, NC and Richmond, VA.
