Bruce Price: Works on Paper, 2007-2012 is an exhibition at the Denver Art Museum featuring more than 30 drawings and sculptures by the Denver-based artist. (Price teaches at his alma mater Rocky Mountain School of Art + Design and is represented by Denver’s prestigious Plus Gallery.) Many of Price’s works use patterns of garments collected from family and friends. They are cut, layered, reordered and applied to the surface of his drawings. Obsessed with patterns and the chaos that can ensue from them, Price distorts these same works on paper by twisting, cutting, and folding the drawings into a series of three-dimension objects he calls “follies.”
The Price exhibition is just one part of the Museum’s campus-wide exhibition “Spun: Adventures in Textiles,” open until September 22, 2013, to celebrate the newly renovated textile art galleries, and the new line of textile-related merchandise (Maruca clutch bags, Kei & Molly tea towels) available in the museum shop.
