Using acrylics to create saturated abstract
works of art, one will look at the painting and hopefully feel some kind
of connection or will be drawn to the colors themselves. There are really
no recognizable features in the art, except for the Abstract Flowers and
Color Stretch series of my work. It’s primarily color without borders
intended to create a visceral response. There are daily activities that
stimulate the brain chemically. Smells that bring you back to when you
were a child. Tasting something you remember from your most favorite
dish or meal. Seeing a loved one, or beautiful architecture, or painting
that truly makes you think and maybe cry.
October 12th through November 30th, 2017

King‘s portrait work is inspired from caught glimpses of what people see in their own minds as reflections of themselves. These fleeting instances are recorded in this highly varied and diverse show.
The show opens Aug 10th and runs through Sept 30th. The two openings will be on the second Thursday of the month for the Capitol Hill art walk.
J M King is a London-born artist currently working in the Pacific Northwest.
