The Tower

The Tower is the most recent work by Paul Knight and makes art historical reference to Bruegel’s Tower of Babel, 17th Century Northern European still life painting and the traditional daguerreotype camera. Yet the hyperreality of the tulips brings us sharply back to photography in the 21st Century . Once again, Paul’s fantastical photographs are as suggestive, detailed and esoteric as his previous work.  Available in three sizes, in signed limited editions.  The sizes quoted are the paper sizes and the image size is slightly smaller with a white border.  Framing is not included but can be arranged at an additional cost.

Price does not include delivery, please ask for quotation.

Description

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 times past before we are brought sharply in line with our world today. 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.
