As Frances is a regular exhibitor in our gallery and we have just completed a very popular show we have decided to dedicate a special page to her work. We will be doing this in time with other artists who would like us to.
We have at all times a selection of works by Frances available. As we are a small gallery and have little space it is not always imediately on hand but we can arange to bring it to the gallery any time you wish or even to your home if you live nearby. Please just give us a little bit of warning when you wish to visit.
This page will develop further in the near future.
Frances Knight is a contemporary landscape artist. She likes to paint outside directly from nature, exploring the effects of light, colour and structure on the landscape and then works on larger paintings from these studies once back in the studio. Interested in exploring the junction point between abstraction and representation, she seeks to express an inner dialogue between subjective experience and objective reality.
"I am not so much interested in rendering the surface qualities of a landscape but in conveying the underlying structure, colour and atmosphere. I like to explore the interaction between the abstract qualities of the two dimensional painted surface with the illusion of space."
After graduating from Camberwell School of Art, Frances won a Commonwealth and British Council Scholarship to complete her Master of Fine Arts in India. Frances worked as a professional painter for Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the Beatles' guru, and the Transcendental Meditation organisation, a non-profit charity dedicated to creating world peace, for more than 30 years. Frances has exhibited her work internationally as well as widely across the UK, and her paintings are in private collections in the UK, Europe, the USA, Canada and India.
