King uses a vibrant color palette and bold, unorthodox geometry. An assistant to Henry Moore early in his career, King's work emulates the tone explored by Abstract Expressionist painting. King aims for the visual experience of his work to create a sensation of movement. Wayzata Reel is one of three "reels" created by King in 1969. After visiting the Harrisons to present this piece, he re-titled it Wayzata Reel.
Gift of Alfred Harrison and Ingrid Lenz Harrision, 2017.
