Elizabeth paints these experimental, paintings, because she values the music that exists in delicate human existence and the natural materials, dictate it's own evolving direction. Elizabeth Kings experimental paintings, indicate conceptual reeds, by the use of contoured figures, playing the flute, and symbolized, by the use of paper musical scores, and notes, in her underpainting, and by the use of organic materials that present the art of the flute, in her pallet, of silver, iridescent, bright and natural earth colors.
Elizabeth King’s paintings narrate, two themes, Time and Memory. Time is the transitory reflection of sound painted by Music symbolism, represented by flutes, silver, reeds. Memory is depicted in the faded images of figures, Tamino and Tamina and Sarastro derived from , Mozart's , ''The Magic Flute,'' composing music.
The paintings are based her combined under painting of patterned notes, with the final painted image being an emotive lined figure, on a minimalist landscape. Her figurative, ‘‘Residual Print,’’ is a unique, intermediate experimental process, created by Elizabeth King, and unlike a monoprint, as each printed image on paper, is like a residual memory, and an imprint of the actual painting.
