Michael Knight

Michael Kindred Knight paints rectilinear structures that operate as form, field, gesture, and structure. Thinly applied wet-on-wet, his bold, luminous colors and contours produce overlapping layers and marks that appear to curve and slant across the canvas. “I use color to establish a range of artificial constructs in which place, time, light, atmosphere, gravity, and organic and architectonic structures are equally active,” Knight explains. “Each painting looks like a complete, unified whole in which shapes appear to be spatially connected. They also seem to drift apart, free of one another’s influence.”
