Light Matters 2

$ 645

Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper

In Tycjan Knut’s powerful first print release with Tappan, artificial sources of light dance with shadows across prints whose original paintings are sometimes infused with Carrara marble dust. The works wrestle with the abstraction of geometrical design as Knut uses layers of paint and even varying mediums to bring dimensionality to the striking works. Some of the works were created in Tuscany and will be exhibited in Florence as part of the “Horror Vacui” exhibition. The intention behind other works in the release is to create a gentle artificial light source with subtle illusions of shadow and light. The result is an oeuvre that is instantly classic, yet pushes the medium into new and exciting realms.

“ happy with failures. If I’ve failed to make a good painting, it’s only because I tried to do something new. Every mistake leads to progress.”
