J. Albers & K. Price

Reading about Josef Albers (1888-1976) and Ken Price (b.1935) now showing in SoHo at the Brooke Alexander Gallery, I remember again one of my favorite artists of all time....  Apparently Albers was and is a great inspiration to another (and many others, I suppose).  The juxtaposition of these artists' works is as much complementary as it is one-stemming-from-another. 

"The passion for the inexhaustible possibilities of color is the strongest link here, but the profusion of dots to be connected, of shared interests, inspirations and references, is close to mind boggling." -Roberta Smith, New York Times, 3.18.2010
