Gemma King’s work is an exploration into the world around her, using multiple disciplines to properly manifest each idea or thought. King’s work is mainly comprised of bold figurative compositions that comment and reflect on the world around her and her life so far via the warped glass and fickle nature of memory.
Her disciplines include Lino-cuts, Etchings, Lithographs, Carved wooden Sculpture, Mural Paintings and Charcoal drawings.. Through the mode of storytelling and by avoiding illustration or symbols or any abstract sentiments King aims to retreat into the joys of traditional narrative art. There is always a dark and ambiguous sense of something having just happened, an aftermath that the viewer is denied.
