Luke Knight: Featured Artist, Show Delayed to May

1 - 30 May 2020

Luke's exceptionally beautiful oil on board paintings are inspired by the Cornish landscape and his passion for the ever-changing beauty of the sky and ocean. First saturating the board with paint, Luke strips back the surface of his works to create detail and texture, repeatedly colouring and eroding in a process that reflects the dynamic nature of the coastal landscape. The result is a collection of softly vibrant works, imbued with the colours of Cornwall throughout the seasons. Citing Pierre Bonnard, Julius Olsson and Fred Cumming RA as significant influences, and exhibiting a rare sensitivity for contemporary landscape painting, Luke is an award-winning new artist whose work is surely among the most collectable in 2020.
