Kris Knight

Kris Knight is a Canadian painter whose work examines performance in relation to the construction, portrayal and boundaries of sexual and asexual identities. Knight paints disenchanted characters that are lost between youth and adulthood. His mythical and ambiguous portraits are a synthesis of fantasy and real-world memory. They tiptoe between the dichotomies of pretty and menace, hunter and hunted, innocence and the erotic.
