About The Artwork

Fresh from the artist‘s studio. 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.

Manuela K. Knaut, born in 1970, lives and works in Braunschweig, Germany, as a freelance artist. She obtained her Master of Arts in Fine Arts from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. She also studied Art Education (with a focus on Painting and Museum Education) at the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (Germany) and worked as a museum educator, author, university lecturer and art teacher in public schools. Manuela has been a member of the BBK, the Professional Association of Fine Artists in Germany since 2003 and is a member of the Association Internationale des Arts Plastiques which is in official relations with UNESCO. She is also a member of the The Visual Arts Network of South Africa (VANSA) and GEDOK. Manuela Karin Knaut is best known for her paintings and art installations, but she also works with a wider range of media, including collages, photography and architectural objects. Her art is primarily expressionistic, a cypher for memories and emotions that can be frank and poetic as well as intimate and universal. Infused with colour and created with eloquent brushstrokes, Knaut´s often huge semi-abstract canvases and objects are charged with an explosive energy. Knaut´s work focuses on contemporary issues and universal themes regarding the human condition, such as home, love, loss and loneliness. She always finds inspiration for her multi-faceted works in being a seeker and a collector of things, and in passionately observing everyday life. The artist often uses personal situations, which then find their way into diverse series of her work. She deliberately makes room for a seemingly purposeless play with all sorts of objects and other materials. At first glance, these pieces of art present themselves in a light and blunt manner, but are never an accidental creation.
