Rick Dailey is a sculptor, photographer, new media artist, and curator. He received his BA from Central Washington University and his MFA from the University of South Florida in Tampa. Rick previously worked as the Gallery Director at RMCAD and was formerly the Studio Coordinator of Photography and New Media at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colorado.
Rick’s work investigates identity and the historical traces of his enculturation. Using various media and staged environments, Rick uncovers and disrupts his associations with seemingly banal objects through disarming occurrences of humor, absurdity, symbolic gesture, and artifice. Through his process, Rick constructs situations and encounters that allow him to reflect upon conditions that govern his relationship with objects, memory, place, time, and perception.
