Placing beauty in practice
Acquiring a Kue King sculpture is an event like no other.
Some collectors know just what they want and buy online immediately. With others we arrange a video chat to talk about art, get to know each other, and review your placements and sculpture interests. It’s up to you.
After you choose your sculpture we crate the work and ship. Installation hardware is provided and we are always available for advice or an installation walk-through.
Kue says, ”My work is painstakingly birthed out of me with all I know of beauty. They are my meditations, my passion, my babies. When they find the right collector and home, they shine and radiate a new vibration that is in tune with it’s new environment.”
Gallery of Installations:
Katie, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida:
“I’ve seen your work in Florida Design for years. When my house was completed last fall I knew I had to have one of your sculptures. I’d never seen the work in person but you offered me a full refund if hung it and I wasn’t absolutely delighted. I knew just what I wanted and ordered online. It was seamless. You called and double checked every little detail and a few days later my sculpture arrived. The crate was beautiful, the sculpture was phenomenal, and the installation was easy.
I couldn’t be more delighted! You have transformed my pallid living room into peaceful and sparkling sanctuary! I can’t thank you enough. Thank you Kue and Corbett!”
Private Collector, Westhampton, New York:
“My heart flutters when I think of all the emotion you pour into your work. Thank you for the honor to have your work in our homes. Our most sacred places. Whether sitting with a glass of wine at twilight or now with a cup of coffee after the kids have left for school the tranquility and peace that our “Tree of Life” gives me is immeasurable.”
Bob and Sharon, Chicago, Illinois:
”Kue and Corbett were kind enough to bring several pieces to our home, and help us make a decision as to what piece would look the best. Once mounted and properly lit, we received many compliments. So many that we simply had to have more of Kue’s work for our home in Chicago. It just so happened that Kue and Corbett were at the Highland Park Art Fest in Illinois, where we purchased two additional pieces that fit beautifully in our Illinois residence. This art is both beautiful and unparalleled.”
Shirley Smith, Sarasota, Florida:
”My experience with both Kue and Corbett was not only pleasant but very successful. I was looking for a piece that would stand out and be different from anything I had seen.
What I found was not only the piece was different but so was the artist. Kue was very interesting not only to look at but also to talk to. His sculpture reflects the man—beautiful and interesting and different from any others. I get wonderful comments on the piece.”
Growing and Evolving
The roots of this collection come into wire from heirloom basket weaving of old. Recast by Ruth Asawa in the 70’s, Kue has learned from her techniques in wire. With his current collection, he seeks a modernist expression, working to expand and resolve the postmodern difficulties of Asawa’s sculpture.
The most beautiful beginning
When Kue builds a collection, some pieces complete quickly while other pieces morph and change over time. Pieces disappear; new pieces emerge from the old. Some works take months to complete. Others happen in a fit of overnight inspiration.
Working with collectors as a collaborative art form, none Kue’s pieces are truly finished until he places them.
