Rick Bach was born an artist drawing for as long as he can remember. He was influenced at an early age by his father who owned an auto body shop which did custom paint work. There are no readymade categories for the artist; he explores all media from works on paper to metal to wood and his style ranges from architectural to figurative. Bach’s motivation is to entertain and provoke while pushing the boundaries between conventional and absurd, functional and useless. The artist currently resides in Washington, DC, while maintaining a studio in Pittsburgh.
“I can’t remember a time when I didn’t draw. It is just something I did and continue to do daily. Whether it is a painting or sculpture everything starts with drawing. I work every day to create as much as I can. My art speaks for me as words do for an author.” - Rick Bach
