Vibrant, articulate and passionate

Inge King is one of Australia's foremost sculptors. Her work has always been on a grand scale.
Her public sculptures invite exploration - to walk through, slide down, sit on or just canoodle around.
Born in Berlin in 1918, she studied sculpture at the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts but was forced to flee in 1939.
King arrived in Melbourne in 1951 to find that modern sculpture hadn't shown its face.
It was tough going at first, but she began creating non-representational sculpture in welded steel inspired by the Australian bush.

Review Highlights

I think this is an absolutely great piece, really, really strong character which all programming scripted or otherwise needs, and a really, really strong narrative – I felt we went somewhere. I thought this was actually really good - strong and interesting. Michael Idato Sydney Morning Herald On-Line Review

Inge King’s an inspiring person because she’s so modern and most of her work is in large form sculptures, she’s not sort of protective or prissy about her art. This profile of Inge King’s career and support for modernism in large-scale, site-specific works, is filled with zest. Reviewer:
Doug AndersonSYDNEY MORNING HERALD print review, 30th March 2010
‘A Thousand Different Angles’ provides an engaging and insightful portrait of a sculptor who has maintained the courage of her convictions over many years. The film, like the artist, is an affirmation of the regenerative creative spirit.
Deborah Hart, Senior curator of Australian painting and sculpture post-1920 at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra
