Ken Price by Vija Celmins

Book Description

For over 40 years Ken 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 fetish-like objects are meticulously painted and sanded to create rich, patterned skins with jewel-like surfaces. His brilliantly-colored drawings depict an often 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. In addition to the 60 color reproductions included here, fellow Los Angeles artist Vija Celmins contributes an interview with Price, further investigating his motivations and processes, contextualized in the California art community he helped to create.
