Martin King 'Mine'

Tax included.

Martin King’s work is deftly poetic. He is interested in the “tragic irony” of Australia’s environment — its proneness to fire, skirt by sea, drought alongside flooding. In ‘Mine’ he evokes the landscape in lines, using density and colour to recall the auburn earth. Perhaps there is a dual resonance to the work’s title, a reference to mines and a feeling of personal connection.

King is represented nationally at the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of NSW, State Library of Victoria and Parliament House. Internationally, he is in the collections of the British Museum, Carleton College Library, Minnesota, Bharat Bhavan India and Bihra Museum, India. In 2019, he was awarded both the Muswellbrook Drawing Prize and the Gallipoli Art Prize.

For collectors of works on paper, the textual ‘Mine’ is an elegant find.
