“This act of shared imagining is timely, offering sensations of closeness with friends and strangers alike. Though actual human figures never find their way into her paintings explicitly, they are ever-present by implication, through traces of everyday actions: the top of a chair tucked under a table, a towel drying on a railing, a window left ajar, a curtain hurriedly not-quite-drawn. These domestic objects and adornings become proxies for the absent humans; the scenes as a whole, like still-life glimpses into the lives of others.”
Extract from essay “A view of one’s own” by Lizzie Lloyd, 2020

The artist

Catherine Knight

Catherine Knight is a painter based at BV Studio Bristol and a RWA Artist Network member. Since graduating from an MA in Fine Art at Bath Spa University in 2008 with a distinction, she has exhibited widely in both private and public gallery spaces including Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the Royal West of England Academy.  Most notably she was an invited artist at the Discerning Eye exhibition in 2014 and was shortlisted for the John Gingell prize in 2012.

Her work is distinctive for its vibrant use of colour and evocative landscapes based on Iceland and Finland. In 2018 Catherine was one of five artists who took part in the Bristol / Hannover Artist Exchange, which linked up artists in the two cities and resulted in group exhibitions in both.
