Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Spray Paint, Ink and Graphite on Cardboard.

Welcome to another powerful and playful page in Manuela’s colourful artist diary! One of the latest agile, bright and energy-laden pieces, coming straight from the artist’s studios in Johnnesburg. 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.
