The Art of Inge King: Sculpture | Author: Sasha Grishin
This publication surveys the life's work of an artist who arrived in Australia in the early 1950s having already undertaken art studies in Germany, England and Scotland. She had also travelled to America to witness, first hand, post-war developments in the New York art world. The extravagantly illustrated book, with wonderful photographs by Mark Strizic, John Gollings, Jacqui Henshaw, Robin Whittle and others, attempts to document the majority of the artist's sculptures and works on paper produced over her decades in this country.
Included for special consideration in the text are sections on King's major public commissions such as Forward Surge at the Victorian Arts Centre and Rings of Saturn at Heide Museum of Modern Art. By concentrating on the artist's entire career, from art school studies in the 1930s to works produced as recently as 2014, this book is intended to be a singularly comprehensive coverage of the artist's iconographic and stylistic development and a record of this 98 year-old's creative life dedicated to the art of sculpture.
