Kris Knight employs traditional media to explore contemporary notions of identity and sexuality. Working in a lush color palette inspired by the French Rococo artists of the 18th century, Knight immaculately renders intimate portraits of characters drawn from his inner circle with a focus on hauntingly tender poses delivered by young men. His paintings are heartbreakingly romantic, emphasized by his usage of sensual pastels, isolated settings, and pensive stares. An unabashed celebration of beauty, Knight’s work also serves as a vehicle for messaging regarding the boundaries of sexuality in its contemporary myriad fluid forms.
Framing option is white or black painted wood, 7/8” wide flat face and 7/8” deep, with UV acrylic glass.
