Franklin Parrasch and Christopher Heijnen are pleased to present Ken Price: A Career Survey, 1961 - 2008, the inaugural exhibition at Parrasch Heijnen Gallery, Los Angeles. A legend amongst Los Angeles-based artists, Ken Price (1935-2012) is best known as a sculptor of abstract and sensual, biomorphic ceramic forms. The surfaces of Price's objects, which involved chromatic techniques so complex and adroitly achieved that they exist only in his sculptures, are so jarringly compelling and uniquely beautiful they challenge the viewer's concepts of beauty itself. His surfaces read like skins impregnated with color, generating chromatic tendencies that hearken everything from 1960s commercialism to otherworldly phenomena.
Opening reception for the gallery and the exhibition will be held on: Friday, January 29, 2016 6:00pm - 8:00pm Ken Price: A Career Survey, 1961 - 2008 will be on view from January 30th - March 8th, 2016. Click here for more information.
