Ken Price: The Large Sculptures

Fredrik Nilsen's 2010 photograph of Ken Price's "Simple-istic" (2009) installed outside the artist's studio in Taos, New Mexico (with Happy Price's greenhouse in the background), is reproduced from Matthew Marks' beautiful new exhibition catalog, Ken Price: The Large Sculptures. Essayist Alex Kitnick writes, "The surfaces of Price’s sculptures are … smooth, loaded, and bright with color. Busy with an ecstatic static. (The surfaces of the late sculptures tend to be matte, but they are also more glowing.) It is as if the promise of dynamism and depth cleanly contained behind the hard surfaces of our interfaces has broken out and bodied forth. (I think this goes back to my first impression of the sculptures, reading their surfaces as screens.) A Price sculpture is plasma gone wild, then hardened, waiting to be charged again."
