Karla Knight - Navigator

Andrew Edlin Gallery


Karla Knight: Navigator, Second Edition / featuring an essay by Amy Smith-Stewart / 151-page hardback, 10.5 x 12.75 inches, published by Andrew Edlin Gallery

I missed the first edition of this book (only managing to grab one for myself), so this is a very welcome reprint & highly recommended!


About the show: "Karla Knight has spent the last forty years creating an impressive body of work that spans painting, drawing, and photography. Navigator, her first institutional solo show, will take the form of a focused survey, charting the development of her far-seeing language over a four-decade-long career....Knight's imagery is steeped in science, the occult, early twentieth century abstraction, Surrealism and Native American art. Her visual language is purposefully impenetrable—she offers no clues or methods to its decoding. For her, its true meaning must remain unnamed, as it is ultimately inspired by 'the mysteries and absurdities of life.' Her dense paintings and works on paper swirl with graphic shapes, diagrams, and ciphers that appear both archaic and spaced-aged."
