John King explores his interest in the phenomenology of the imagination. As in his paintings and drawings, King's prints combine different images to capture qualities of things seen and experienced as they first emerge in the mind.
"It is not so much knowledge of the thing itself but an awareness of the mind's imaginative capacity to enrich and complicate what we might think we already know."
King has received an NEA Grant, and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. His work is included in collections of The Brooklyn Museum, The Library of Congress, Yale University Art Gallery, The Weatherspoon Art Gallery and Harvard University Art Museum.
