Catalogue Note

"By 2000, Price was working with what he characterized as 'rounded forms with active surfaces'...Though they are, for the most part, abstract, they feel alive. Blink your eyes and one might slink across a table while another might rise or collapse on its pedestal. And their speckled, mottled exteriors are wholly unexpected. No wonder the artist said about this series, which occupied him longer than any other, that it continued 'to offer possibilities for me that are interesting and challenging.'"

Phyllis Tuchman, "Color Me Sculpture," in Exh. Cat., Los Angeles County Museum of Art (and traveling), Ken Price Sculpture: A Retrospective, 2013, p. 185
