Dana King Art

Oakland, CA

"Black Art in America has identified King as one of 10 Emerging Black Female Artists to Collect and calls her work “important, as it places history in contemporary contexts so that we are reminded of those who fought for our freedom.”"
I am a classical figurative sculptor who also paints. Painting is a more immediate medium that I use when I feel the need to get something off my chest right now. The narrative when using clay requires more time: time to sit with the story as told in a 3 dimensional space. I prefer sculpting because it allows the medium do the talking for as long as a piece will last. Bronze is an unforgiving material that can stand for centuries. Sculpture also takes up space and space is power. I dream of seeing sculptures of and by African Americans installed throughout this country.
