Sensual Mechanical: The Art of Craig Kauffman
 
In this monograph, Hunter Drohojowska-Philp traces the development of Craig Kauffman's luminous paintings by juxtaposing the artist's architectural rigor with his unabashed sensuality. As one of the most significant figures to emerge from the lively art scene that arose in the 1960s in Los Angeles, Kauffman harnessed his disparate impulses to achieve an unparalleled body of work.

Ken Price
 
With over twenty selected examples of Price's intimate ceramics as well as a handful of prints, this publication demonstrates his exquisite attention to scale, color, and sensuality. Since his earliest work in clay, Price pushed the boundaries of the medium with his refined finishes and rich associations, from the primordial and organic to Mexican folk pottery. Price addressed many issues in work that ranged from abstract sculpture to intimate, hand-held cups.

Jennifer Lee
New Work
 
The Frank Lloyd Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Scottish born ceramist Jennifer Lee. Composed of ten elegant and intimate vessels, the show is marked by a feeling of graceful suspension as the works settle lightly into the space. Lee hand-builds her pots, using an arduous method of ceramic construction. This long process heightens her profound sensitivity to her material, and the finished works illustrate her instinctive understanding of form and volume.

Scot Heywood
Polarities
 

The title Polarities accurately describes Scot Heywood's new paintings. They are composed of multiple monochrome panels, with an inherent tension that exhibits contrasting properties. Often composed of four or five different panels, the new paintings employ two vertical bars which seem to move in a specific direction. These geometric planes of color and the interaction of refined surface techniques are the subject of Scot Heywood's exhibit at Frank Lloyd Gallery.

Craig Kauffman
The Numbers Paintings
 
In the third exhibition to be drawn from the Estate of Craig Kauffman (1932-2010), the Frank Lloyd Gallery presents a series of paintings by Kauffman made in 1989. In the Numbers paintings, Kauffman's interest in unorthodox application of paint and love of the physicality of painting are accompanied by his brilliant color sense. Kauffman considered the 1989 works, which became known as the Numbers, to be a continuation of his use of calligraphic line, and an integration of sensuous color with architectural form.

The Ambit of Embraces
 
The Frank Lloyd Gallery presents a group exhibition that demonstrates the tactility and intimacy of the ceramic vessel, from hand-held Japanese tea bowls to large-scale vases. All 17 of the works in the show are intimate aesthetic objects, made by hand. The show is inspired by a quote from New Yorker art critic Peter Schjeldahl:

"Painting exercises the eye; sculpture echoes the body. Ceramics express and are addressed to the hand. They acquire their full meaning within arm's reach—the ambit of embraces—where the sovereignty of sight blurs into that of touch."
