Product description

Ken Price. Contributions by Vija Celmins and Ken Price. Essay by Matthew Higgs. For over 40 years Price has been heavily invested in the creation and innovation of form and color in ceramic sculpture. His adventurous work has pushed the boundaries of structure and glazing, creating remarkably lively shapes and color patterns and cementing his reputation as one of the most influential artists working in the medium today. This volume highlights Price's newest work as well as a retrospective sampling from the artist's long career in sculpture and drawing. Price's recent sensuously shaped fetishlike objects are meticulously painted and sanded to create rich, patterned skins with jewel-like surfaces. His brilliantly colored drawings depict a fantastic realm of rushing lava, raging seas, and roaming creatures. A very important facet of Price's oeuvre, the drawings highlight themes that run throughout his work and show Price to be a fine and original draftsman. Sixty color images of works by the artist are accompanied by an interview with the artist by fellow Los Angeles artist Vija Celmins that further investigates his motivations and processes in the context of the California art community he helped to create. Hardback with dust jacket, 148 pages, 73 images.
