Historical Context:
Dru King received his BA from Grand Valley State University and his MFA from Kendall College of Art and Design with a emphasis on painting. King's style has been compared to that of Gustav Klimt and his work is commonly described as beautiful, lyrical and exotic. His subjects are commonly placed against ambiguous and sometimes colorful backgrounds and are typically arranged in deistic poses. This painting draws inspiration from the Greek mythology story of the 3 Fates (or Moirai), who controlled the metaphorical thread of life of every mortal from birth to death.
