In this week’s The New Yorker read a short review of our current Ken Price show, which is only on view through Sunday, August 18."Saturated colors and surreal vistas characterize sixty-five intimate drawings by the brilliant ceramicist who died last year and whose sculpture is the current subject of a show at the Met. Early gouaches of claustrophobic interiors with film-noir flourishes (a dead boy in a bathtub, an unmade bed in a detective’s room) give way to lush landscapes in juicy acrylic, turbulent scenes of volcanoes and oceans that can suggest updates of Hokusai, every inch vibrating with color. Working in Taos, New Mexico, Price often portrayed his signature tuberous forms amid desert settings: “Large Sculpture with Rocks,” which he completed in 2009, features an aqua version squeezed between two jagged red peaks."  - August 12 & 19, 2013, p. 20-21Image: Large Sculpture with Rocks, 2009, Acrylic and ink on paper, 11 x 8 ½ inches, Private collection, Courtesy of Matthew Marks Gallery
