George Rickey worked as painter, muralist, and sculptor. Across his diverse body of work from the paintings of the 1920s through the final sculptures of the 2000s, there are four themes that emerge: Movement, Color, Relationships, and Scale. These themes provide an insight into Rickey’s work that may not be immediately apparent when looking at the work chronologically.
