BIO

There is continuity throughout all Knapp’s work where the imagery has been grounded in the interrelatedness of earthly, organic forms. In her most recent series, there is no intent to literally represent nature, but there continues to be an exploration of its abstract form, referencing her relative placement from unusual vantage points.

Sometimes the imagery is influenced by notions of depicting underwater scenes, looking up through the diffused lens of the depths, past the surface to the sky above. And other times she imagines the sight from inside the center of a repetitive petal pattern, pushing out to a surrounding periphery. Another piece may reflect the view from above, within and through a random shaped mass of cloud.

Knapp replicates these notions in the painting process, inspecting with paint from inside out. These positions, depicted through layers of color and glaze, are placed and removed until the forms develop through this additive process.
