  • Catalogue Essay

    ‘I make the skies first using watercolor. There’s no way of knowing how they’ll come out as they dry. Miraculous little things happen; it’s all luck. Drawing was always a private activity for me, with nothing riding on it… I still learn a lot from the drawings, even the ones that disturb me.’ Ken Price
