Ken Price’s biomorphic forms spring from the intuitive spirit of a well-lived life and a self-possession that comes with a finely-honed acumen for his craft. A scintillating selection of sculptures from the last two decades of the artist’s life is currently on view at Matthew Marks. Price abandoned the wheel in the late 1970s, so these clay objects are hand-made, formed through a keen understanding of the medium’s technical challenges and inspired by the rough beauty of the high desert of New Mexico. Numerous coats of colors spawn sublime patinas of burnt orange, clay red, and earthy brown that hold infinitesimal patterns reminiscent of the microcosm of nature. At times Price sprinkled the clay with grains to achieve an organic texture that complements a curvy tactility which begs to be embraced rather than touched. At Matthew Marks through December 22.
