Return to the Gallery

 

 

Frazier King was born in Virginia and now lives and works in Houston, Texas. He is mostly self taught but has attended classes and workshops sponsored by the Southwest School of Art and Crafts in San Antonio, Texas, and other institutions. His most recent work ("Orchidaceae") explores the nature of the orchid and enquires whether we may see sensual or spiritual reflections of ourselves. This work has been shown in numerous exhibitions throughout the United States as well as in Mexico, Canada, Peru and France. Solo shows have been at Fotofest 2002 in Houston, TX: Galeria De Arte Fotografica in San Miguel, Mexico; and at Honeysuckle Gallery in Fayetteville, Texas. A second body of work is an examination of whether each of our collections of personal objects, when photographed tableau, reflects an interior landscape. Finally, work done while traveling in Mexico looks for poetic reflections of the basics of daily life. The two bodies of earlier work have been shown in numerous exhibitions since 1994.
