AUSiMED PRESENTS THE SOCIAL EVENT OF THE YEAR THE SOCIAL EVENT OF THE YEAR

Jasper Knight

Untitled, 2015.

Enamel, perspex, masonite on board
150 x 150cm
$ 18,500 Gallery price

Questioning the boundaries between high art and the amateur or postcard photo, Knight also blurs distinctions between sculpture and painting. Works are constructed of plywood, Perspex, cardboard boxes, old signs, found plastic tiles and sheets - the surfaces and materials having their own histories. These histories often bear a direct relation to the content of the work. For example, Knight's series based on ports was constructed, in part, from the detritus left behind on the wharves.

Spatially, the works are varied: they privilege the surface, but at the same time play upon traditional perspective. Recent work continues to explore this relationship between material and subject, between constructed object and painted surface, in a more abstract way. The subject matter, from wharves to cars, chairs to landscape, helps explore these binary concerns and is treated in a highly architectural and linear way.
