Publisher's description: Drawing was essential to the art of Ken Price (1935-2012): "For me drawing is really flexible, and I use it in different ways. It's my way of developing ideas." This volume provides the most substantial overview of Price's widely lauded drawing practice. Price's earliest drawings, from the 1960s, explore forms and colors for his abstract sculptures, but he also drew bizarre objects, like cups with a leaping frog or a cavorting nude for a handle. By the end of the 1960s the imaginary spaces they inhabited were fully realized in high-key colors and precise detail. Around 2002, when Price and his family moved permanently to Taos, New Mexico, the landscape of his drawings grew wilder. In their erupting volcanoes, cyclonic skies and turbulent seas, nature is a dominant force. By 2005 Price had begun incorporating his sculptural forms into this same primordial world, reimagining them as monumental figures.
