Art Description

Painting: Spray Paint, Acrylic, Ink, Chalk and Airbrush on Canvas.

Fresh from my studio. All my life.

This amazing, vibrant and positive piece of original art comes straight from the artist’s new studio. After years of working and living in Johannesburg, South Africa, German born and raised Manuela Knaut is continuing her international art career in both Germany and South Africa.

Manuela Karin Knaut’s paintings can be compared to a balancing act between colour, shape and line, surface and space, abstraction and object, image and writing. The individual, coloured surfaces are applied to the canvas with strong brush strokes and are continuously worked over. Integrated into the process of painting, are more or less defined objects, everyday utensils from the thick of life, which are sometimes contoured in a linear manner or depicted flat, painted over or partially exposed.
In her paintings, the artist combines an enormous variety of materials and with this approach stays true to her style of art in an unafraid manner, which she realizes over and over in large room installations. She uses collage, strings, staples, alters sewed objects she found, on or inside her world of images. There is spraying involved and complementing with silk-screen printing. In Knaut’s colour-intensive imagery world, you can find similar layering, stapling and combining in the same way as with her room objects. The confrontation with and combination of painting and working with different materials on canvas leads inevitably to a journey of discovery into the playful-sensual and most of all energy-laden artistic world of Manuela Karin Knaut, which leaves much room for one’s own stories, inviting thoughts to roam.
