A Collection of “Combines” by Delaware Artist Jack Knight.
Jack says, “These works are a departure from conventional easel painting. I refer to these as “combines” because I combine painted canvas, wood and masonite in creating a composition, resulting sometimes as an explosion effect, of shapes and colors.
“There are still some elements of my previous paintings using these shapes and colors but the overlapping is no longer an illusion but reality in spontaneous placement.”
“So what are these artworks that hang on a wall, painting or sculpture?
“They are 3 dimensional, so they could be considered sculpture. However they include painted canvas. I’m not overly concerned on how to categorize, only to be appreciated.”
Jack Knight was born in Welland, Ontario, Canada and grew up in western New York. He graduated from Buffalo State College with a BS Degree in Art Education and New York State Teaching Certification. With a scholarship from the Buffalo Foundation he attended the Graduate School of Art & Architecture at State University of New York at Buffalo and received a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Painting in 1976.
Knight has had more than 100 exhibits including 15 solo exhibits. He has received numerous awards for his artwork and is represented in several corporate, museum and private collections including the Bank of Boston, Pennsylvania Bank & Trust, Milton Bradley Company, Ernst & Young, Occidental Chemical, Springfield Newspapers, Burchfield Penney Art Center, Schenectady Museum and the Southern Vermont Art Center.
