Famous for his diminutive sculptures, often small enough to hold in one’s hands, Ken Price was long interested in making larger works. As early as 1967 he made drawings of over-life-size sculptures set in imaginary landscapes. It was not until 2006, however, that he exhibited his first large work, the seven-foot-tall Bulgolgi. By 2009 he had finished three more large sculptures, and he completed five additional large sculptures before his untimely death in 2012.

For over fifty years Price was a constantly inventive artist, continually changing the forms, surfaces, colors, and shapes of his sculptures. The bulbous forms of the last large sculptures, made at the end of his life, are sanded to a smooth perfection and then lacquered in iridescent colors that augment their seductive power. Alex Kitnick writes in his catalogue essay, “Price’s work shape shifts; it morphs. It always seems on the verge of turning into something else, of letting go, of relaxing or skirting across the floor. A contour of his could suggest almost anything.”
