Ray King has been a professional artist for thirty years. He has more than two decades’ experience in the public art field.
In 1975, King received a Louis C. Tiffany Fellowship study with Patrick Reyntiens, a master in stained glass, at the Burleighfield House Trust in Buckinghamshire, England. On his return to the United States the following year he became involved with the craft art movement.
The scale and scope of his work evolved as he moved into the public art realm. His work has included free-standing sculptures, mosaic floors, and other types of permanent installations.
His materials includes holographic, light-responsive laminate films, and 3-D modeling software for highly engineered tensile structures. Each of his permanent installations is site-specific and inspired by its surroundings.
Since 1976 his work has been exhibited worldwide, including at Museum of Contemporary Craft in New York, Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art in Sapporo, Japan.
