Kent-based artist Kate Knight is known for her provocative artworks, each one playful with a deliciously dark twist. Figurative imagery of birds, beasts and botany, belies an undercurrent of sex and death, mixing memory with desire, for an unforgettable contemporary aesthetic.



Loaded with allegory and allusion, ‘Oblivion’ depicts a gnarled tree, its branches hung with emerald green apples, shrivelling in a state of decay. At the base of the tree, surrounded by wilting pink roses, lie a hair and a hawk, while a rainbow blossoms in the background. What is this garden of death and demise? Saturated with Biblical undertones, ‘Oblivion’ is a work of profound and poignant contemplation.

About The Artist - Kate Knight


Kate Knight works primarily with figurative imagery. Within the drawn explorations of nature, Knight's concerns are upon the aesthetics of desire, sex and death. The work is provocative, playful, harsh and tongue in cheek. The compositions establish a series of graphic signs, aiming to evoke a narrative whether epic or fleeting. The current developments juxtapose a dark underbelly, presenting unease; as well as the guardianship of something sacred. This response is loaded with a sense of otherness, something beyond the ordinary; played out upon a dystopian landscape.
Knight currently works in biro as well as painting and sculpture. The use of biro on such a large scale is labour intensive; enabling very fine detail and presenting an etched like quality. Knight approaches drawing in much the same way as she paints. Her methodology is comprised of layering translucent colour upon colour, achieving a rich and vibrant depth to her penmanship as well as a painterly luminosity to her subject. For this reason she considers herself to be primarily a painter.
