Magdalena Suarez Frimkess

Introduction by Ricky Swallow.

Magdalena Suarez Frimkess

A long-overdue monograph on the playful, pop-inspired ceramics of West Coast legend Magdalena Frimkess

This is the first book on the Venice, California-based ceramicist Magdalena Suarez Frimkess (born 1926). Now in her 90s, the Venezuela-born artist is just now getting the recognition she deserves, with her work finding its way into the collections of LACMA and the Hammer Museum. Her unique approach to ceramics—incorporating cartoon characters such as Felix the Cat, Popeye, Olive Oyl, Goofy and Betty Boop as well as more traditional motifs such as landscapes, birds and flowers—has charmed a younger generation of artists such as Jonas Wood, Shio Kusaka, Mark Grotjahn, Lesley Vance and Ricky Swallow, who contributes an essay here. Magdalena Suarez Frimkessoffers a broad range of the colorful autobiographical pieces she has produced over her career. This book also includes a poster of one of her characteristic cartoon works.

Tiny but mighty 'Magdalena Suarez Frimkess' is a Staff Favorite for Fall 2019

Magdalena Suarez Frimkess is a Staff Favorite for Fall 2019

Featured image is reproduced from staff favorite, Magdalena Suarez Frimkess, the first monograph ever published on the nonagenarian Venice Beach ceramicist, which is a wonderful book in its own right, but also comes with a fold-out newsprint poster of the Felix the Cat figure reproduced on the cover. "Whenever I visit Magdalena," Ricky Swallow writes, "we view her pieces in progress and chat during the semi-chaotic ritual of making tea. She will often say: 'I'm not on my overseas vacation anymore, but in a way I'm still there because I'm drawing everything from my trip onto my works' or 'I was just looking at stuff and then I found this cartoon which is so funny, so I have to paint it—you know, the cartoons give me my daily philosophy.' She will always gleefully reference the pleasure associated with images, life and work. Whether she is glazing tiles, pots or tortilla plates, every surface becomes a type of depository of sorts: an area to set, sort and combine images of personal importance." continue to blog
