American artist Alison Knott's Nature Morte series is dedicated to the illustration of skulls shaped by various collages and over a black or white background. This set of two pieces depicts a frontal and side view of the extravagant motif illustrated with floral designs and glitter.
Hailed for her detailed and naturalistic imagery within surreal contexts, contemporary artist Alison Knott is inspired by artists such as Francis Bacon. Obscuring her subjects through new and innovative methods, the artist depicts her figures with a visual sense of unease in sometimes turbulent atmospheres. Recognized for both her paintings and collage works, she often employs a psychedelic color palette and images of nature. These compositions emit a feeling of controlled upheaval and lawlessness, as she distorts her subjects in absurd ways.
Knott attended the Rhode Island School of Design in 1999, Maryland Institute of Art in 2002, Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art in France 2005 and Pace University in New York in 2012. She has exhibited in major galleries like the Opera Gallery in New York, the US Navy Brett Hall in Rhode Island and Maryland Art Place, among others. Her works are included in permanent collections across the country. In January of this year the artist initiated the E3C, a monthly initiative at The Foggy Goggle in Canada gathering creative individuals of all mediums. The artist currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
