Ken Price: DrawingsKen Price: Drawings

Published by Matthew Marks Gallery.
Text by Jean-Pierre Criqui.

Drawing was essential to the art of Ken Price (1935–2012): “For me drawing is really flexible, and I use it in different ways. It’s my way of developing ideas.” This volume provides the most substantial overview of Price’s widely lauded drawing practice. Price’s earliest drawings, from the 1960s, explore forms and colors for his abstract sculptures, but he also drew bizarre objects, like cups with a leaping frog or a cavorting nude for a handle. By the end of the 1960s the imaginary spaces they inhabited were fully realized in high-key colors and precise detail. Around 2002, when Price and his family moved permanently to Taos, New Mexico, the landscape of his drawings grew wilder. In their erupting volcanoes, cyclonic skies and turbulent seas, nature is a dominant force. By 2005 Price had begun incorporating his sculptural forms into this same primordial world, reimagining them as monumental figures.

Ken Price: The Large SculpturesKen Price: The Large Sculptures

Published by Matthew Marks Gallery.
Text by Alex Kitnick.

For over five decades, Ken Price (1935–2012) produced small-scale ceramic sculptures with brightly colored finishes that achieved a balance between form and surface. Then, in the last years of his life, he initiated a dramatic shift in scale and finish. Ken Price: The Large Sculptures unveils this final body of work in its entirety. With dimensions that echo those of the human body, these sculptures speak directly to the viewer’s corporeality. Cast in bronze composite and painted with color-shifting automotive paint, the large sculptures are in one sense the culmination of Price’s long career and in another the beginning of a new path cut tragically short. This large-format book includes a detailed essay by Alex Kitnick that situates these works in the history of modern sculpture. The plates section features multiple views of the works’ seemingly ever-shifting forms. Completing the book are numerous unpublished photographs of the fabrication process at Price’s studio.

Ken Price: Slow and Steady Wins the RaceKen Price: Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Works on Paper 1962-2010

Published by The Drawing Center.
Text by Douglas Dreishpoon.

This publication accompanies the first survey of drawings by Los Angeles artist Ken Price (1935–2013), best known for his abstract, brightly colored ceramic sculptures. Price’s work was only widely exhibited later in his life, but scholars have long admired his highly original forms. As early as 1966, Lucy Lippard commented: “No one else on the East or West Coast is working like Kenneth Price.” Like his better-known sculptures, these drawings feature an idiosyncratic array of amorphous shapes. The book includes an in-depth 44-page illustrated essay by exhibition curator Douglas Dreishpoon, a 20-page section detailing a rarely seen large-scale scroll drawing from 1962, and color plates of all of the nearly 70 works in the exhibition, tracking the evolution of Price’s drawings over 48 years and demonstrating a wide range of characters and techniques.
