Susan doesn’t speak with words, but shares much of her world through extraordinary drawings.
Born in New Zealand in 1951, King stopped speaking between the ages of four and nine. She drew prolifically until gradually stopping in her thirties. In 2008, almost twenty years later, she resumed her work, picking up where she left off. Since then, King has continued her remarkable output of drawings in graphite, pencil, crayon, ink, and pens of various types. Intense, whimsical, wide-ranging, and haunting, her references and subjects dare us to interpret them in any logical way.
