Anna King works in oils on paper pasted onto board, drawing into the wet paint with a pencil to create a deconstructed, sketch-like finished piece. Her desolate landscapes and buildings jive so nicely with the end result.
My work explores the margins of landscape – overlooked, peripheral places – abandoned buildings, wastelands, plantations and quarries. These structures are marks we’ve made on the world, and now time passes without human intervention – paint peels, grass grows through cracks in concrete and the temporary nature of our own existence is brought into sharper focus.

Adore and admire her work. The architectural pieces are wonderful.
