 Representing half a moon cycle the fourteen spheres of La Luna reflect micro-views of the adjacent environment, the landscape, sky and life on a Lake. Wind and water currents move the tranquil orbit of spheres as a single entity. In this work we contemplate the parts that make up the whole. The highly refined moons are highly polished and minimal and not only elegant but eloquent.
In her art practice King has maintained a strong focus on cross-cultural themes, especially in the areas of comparative religion and mythologies, colonial and pre-colonial history, and global ecological issues. This work stems from an interest in archetypal symbols representing the passage of day and night, sun and moon, pivotal themes of megalithic Celtic monuments, an abstract conception of the passing of time and space.
