Walking the ATL
Brickworks Gallery is pleased to present, Walking the ATL, a solo exhibition of oil on canvas paintings by Emma Knight. In this series of Atlanta cityscapes, Knight challenges herself by including more detail than she has before into landscapes. These details include depicting people, scenes of graffiti, reflections in storefronts and on water, and as an homage to host, Brickworks Gallery, are bricks. While painting a landscape, Knight does not attempt to depict the scene in a realistic way. She keeps it recognizable, but with added atmosphere. Knight explores the way line, shape, color and texture can be manipulated to direct the emotion of the scene. Knight’s goal in these paintings is to capture Atlanta's sunny, upbeat and promising mood.
