Ken Price (1935-2012) is best known for his abstract sculptures made from sanding through layers of glazed ceramics to create delicately speckled surfaces. Price was also an avid draftsman and the quirky, colorful drawings surveyed here not only contextualize the sculptures but are a delight in their own right.
Spanning from the 1960s to 2011, we can observe both the artist’s development and the nuances of his vision. While some are purely abstract, others are delicate landscapes and cityscapes whose textures are akin to the surfaces in his sculptures. Though not large, each drawing is polished, a finished work rather than a study for something else. As such they are fantastical images illustrating the inner workings of Price's mind.
