"This is the first book on the ceramicist Magdalena Suarez Frimkess, Born in 1929, the Venezuelan-born, Venice, California-based artist is just now getting the recognition she deserves, with her work finding its way into the collections of LACMA and The Hammer Museum. Her unique approach to ceramics - incorporating cartoon characters such as Felix the Cat, Popeye, Olive Oyl, Goofy, and Betty Boop as well as more traditional motifs such as landscapes, birds, and flowers - has charmed a younger generation of artists such as Jonas Wood, Shio Kusaka, Mark Grotjahn, Lesley Vance, and Ricky Swallow - who contributes an essay here. This lovely catalogue offers a broad range of the colorful autobiographical pieces Magdalena Suarez Frimkess has produced over her long and varied career." A brand new, most handsome example that also includes a poster of one of her characteristic cartoon works laid in. 9781942884514 Inventory Number: E000MSF
