Location: Lied Center, UNL
Info: This metal cardboard-like cutout of a12-foot tall man was made to look like King himself, smoking, his last cigarette and yakking away according to the artist.
This sculpture is a commentary on the human condition which is often in a state of joy, exuberance, and ease.
"His [King’s] success in drawing upon the commonplace grammar of texture is wholly dependent on his gift for invention. He has a gift for creating sculptural forms that make us feel as if we are seeing this grammar of texture for the first time, with new eyes, and experiencing the force of its emotion with a new response."
