This is a series of work by Paul Knight called Stage Whispers. The flowers might remind us of characters in a staged setting, and the photograph makes reference to the old daguerreotype camera. Once again, Paul’s fantastical photographs are as suggestive, detailed and esoteric as his previous work. This work is available unframed, in two sizes of signed limited editions. Framing can be arranged at an additional cost.

Paul Knight ‘s hint of an otherworldly strangeness and charm draws the viewer back to linger longer over his photographic-based artworks. In his still life series his images beckon us to closely examine the exquisite minutiae, letting our minds wander to imagined untold stories and the sadness of fading beauty. Paul’s fine art practice utilises his lifetime of perfected photographic skills as his chosen visual language, preferring to achieve the majority of each shot ‘in camera’ rather than relying on post-production manipulation. He creates and builds a sculptural work, which he then photographs using a long exposure and a light beam to magnify the minute detail in the still life image. The result is a work that makes us wonder whether this is a painting or a drawing, rather than a photographic image.
