Inheritors of Chance is a collection that presents gracefully, rolling imagery that allows the pieces to define stability and disorder as well as everything that lies between. The movement of the oil painting strokes, accompanied with the everchanging texture and colors, captures the metaphorical meaning in the evolving direction of life based on various forms of chance. The use of smooth curvature and gentle shades suggests the inheriting elements that provide the grounding aspects of a being's self and course throughout life. This insightful symbolism, conveyed through this form of dramatized imagery, vividly reveals the brilliance, often overlooked, in the space between the unintentional and preordination. Each art piece in the collection can be distinctively characterized by the colorful features and strict yet flowing lining. King’s intention is to express the beauty often unrecognized in the instinctive components of individual’s lives.
