THE PRICE OF NORMAL (The Killing People series)

Too low to display

It’s a cold, bright morning in east London and the 2012 Turner Prize winner Elizabeth Price is a bit hung over, she tells me, as she makes us mugs of tea at her studio. She gave a talk last night in Southend to accompany her , and went down with a group of friends on the train. There was reason to celebrate. This week Price became the winner of the fifth annual – which at £60,000 is more valuable than the Turner Prize – to create a permanent work for the Ashmolean in Oxford. It makes her the recipient of two of the British art world’s major awards within 12 months – not bad for an artist who admits that, in the first 20 years of her career, she sold only one piece of work.

I was immediately drawn to Elizabeth Price’s wonderful whimsical characters. I love how she creates them to live among the real world as tiny folk; as if they are peeking into our lives and just wanting to be a part of it all. Her pieces have an expression of warmth & kindness and you get a sense that they’re innocent and loving.
