A long-overdue monograph on the playful, pop-inspired ceramics of West Coast legend Magdalena Frimkess. Born in 1929, this Venezuelan-born, Venice, California-based 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. Published to coincide with an exhibition at South Willard that commemorates the artist's ninetieth birthday, this lovely new catalog features a foreword by Swallow and offers a broad, beautifully illustrated range of the colorful, autobiographical pieces Magdalena Suarez Frimkess has produced over her long and varied career.

If you cannot attend but would like to purchase a signed copy, please order here or call 310-458-1499.
