An exhibition of more than 100 of Ken Price's ceramic works opened at LACMA on Sept 16. Price studied at Otis with Peter Voulkos in the late 1950s, and developed his highly individualistic style until his death in 2012 at age 77. The exhibition, curated by Stephanie Barron, was designed by his friend, architect Frank O. Gehry. Throughout his five-decade career, Price remained a giant among L.A. artists.
As Los Angeles Times critic Jory Finkel stated, "The result is an exhibition catalog full of large, brilliantly detailed images that reflect the full range of Price's boldly colored ceramics: from the rough-hewn surfaces of his late '50s and '60s pieces to his slicker geometric volumes of the '80s to his celebrated recent work: voluptuous and playful biomorphic forms on which he layered different colors of acrylic paint so that sanding creates a mottled, multi-hued effect."
