Ken Price

​Inspired by the form and dynamism of ocean waves as well as the human body, Ken Price’s painted ceramic shapes are both erotic and cartoonish, with plump forms and gently sloping curves. Price’s work-intensive process involves applying numerous coats of paint and sanding each piece to achieve a glossy surface of variegated color, as seen in the melting contours of Laird (2010). These playful forms often appear in Price’s watercolors as well, undulating against flattened landscapes painted in acidic colors.
