Ken Price Drawings at Matthew Marks Gallery

Matthew Marks is pleased to announce Ken Price Drawings, the next exhibition in his gallery at 523 West 24th Street. The show features over forty drawings, all from the estate of the artist. None of them have been exhibited before.
“I’ve been drawing since I can remember,” Price has said. “I think sculptors learn to draw so that they can see what they’ve been visualizing.” His earliest works on paper explore forms and colors for his abstract sculptures, as seen in the Specimen drawings of the early 1960s. Price also drew impossible objects, like cups with a leaping frog or a cavorting nude for a handle. In his drawings of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the imaginary spaces inhabited by these objects become more fully realized, as in Coffee Shop at the Chicago Art Institute (1971).
