Brian King is a New Genres artist primarily working in sculpture, video and photography using everyday objects to explore their symbolic value. This most recent body of work explores manila rope as a medium, primarily as an historic signifier, but also for its textural and tensile qualities. After working for many years in the advertising art industry in Chicago, it seemed a natural progression to utilize visual and cultural signifiers as a medium in itself. Having studied with Howard Fried, Paul Kos, Doug Hall, Trisha Donnelley and others, he continues the tradition of Northern California conceptual art. “ I am Duchamp and Brancusi’s bastard baby!”
