Mythical & Ambiguous Portraits // Kris Knight

1

Kris Knight is a Canadian painter whose work examines performance in relation to the construction, portrayal and boundaries of sexual and asexual identities. Knight paints disenchanted characters that are lost between youth and adulthood; they hide their secrets, but desperately long to let them go.

His mythical and ambiguous portraits are a synthesis of fantasy and real-world memory; they tiptoe between the beauty and menace, hunter and hunted. Throughout Knight’s professional practice, he has created thematic bodies of work that reference historical notions of regality, mysticism, romanticism and symbolism.
