Explorations of darkness... invite us to consider what might fill the emptiness, if not ourselves then certainly our fears, and other unreliable perceptions.
Whether it's how we understand the impact of time’s passage or attempts at establishing solid distinctions between fact and fiction, King makes work that does not pick a side, but rather straddles dualities. Not fit to abandon one for another, or hover back and forth, King takes up equal handfuls of psychological, emotional, philosophical, and material fragments from either side and slowly works them together into undifferentiated masses of everything and nothing, and all that falls in between.
