IOWA ARTISTS 2013: Kathranne Knight

April 19 — July 28, 2013
Blank One Gallery

 


Ames, Iowa-based artist Kathranne Knight produces delicately rendered works on paper that explore the horizon line as both a pictorial device and a psychological space. In her drawings, the horizon line is made up of multiple lines that refer to the process of their own making and provides a rhythmic, syncopated texture. Knight considers it the intersection of two points; not only land and sky or water and sky, but day meeting night in the form of a sunset. Formally, the images are built through accretion, while conceptually she looks to the work of Piet Mondrian, Anni Albers, and the films of John Ford for inspiration. The Art Center exhibition will be comprised of medium- and large-scale drawings along with one site-specific piece.
     The exhibition is organized by Gilbert Vicario, senior curator.
 

Iowa Artists 2013 is supported by the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, the Peter H. and E. Lucille Gaass Kuyper Foundation, and KPMG LLC.
