Virginia King: Sculptor

Born in 1946 in Kawakawa, Virginia King attended Wellington Polytechnic School of Design in 1963, Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland in 1964/65 and Chelsea Art School, London in 1979. King is one of New Zealand's best known sculptors, she began focussing on sculpture in the mid-1980s, and has worked in Hinuera stone, bronze, aluminium, stainless steel, earth and wood. Underlying her practice is a concern for the environment, a passion for words and an interest in history and micro-organisms, all of which inspire and inform her work. King's sculptures have ranged from domestic scale to the monumental. King's public commissions include the Rewarewa Creek footbridge in Waitakere City, the Tree of Life sculpture at Auckland's AUT foyer, Nikau Vessel (a 5.5m high aluminium/stainless steel sculpture) in Hastings CBD and Reed Vessel, a 6.5m x 18m stainless steel sculpture incorporating flowing water, mist and poetry, among recreated wetlands in the Melbourne Docklands. Collaborative works include the concept design of the Mission Bay footbridge, and the Waitakere City Aquatic Centre.
