Jill King

Suspended Sculptures/Public Art

Formed by stretching a translucent fabric over a linear steel construction, Kings sculptures look like fantastical botanical drawings, flying kites or lit up celestial cloud formations that have come to life in three dimensions. She often incorporates lighting into her constructions and uses opaque or sheer materials that become illuminated when light is cast on their multi-layered surfaces. King’s works question, “what is ethereal?” and “what is tangible?”. Her organic sculptures highlight the glory and intricacy of the natural world and represents the cycles of life through the power of growth and transformation.
