Interview with Kris Knight [Oct. 11th, 2008|12:37 pm]
Juxtapoz Art and Culture magazine



Kris Knight has concentrated on the creation of thematic series of figurative works. These series involve narratives that explore various expressions of duality and test the boundaries of identity. Kris’s visual compositions examine notions of performance inherit in all constructions of identity, whether sexual or asexual. Kris explores themes that often dealt with ambiguity and androgyny, with an emphasis on the notion of hiding and fronting. Thus, the portraits are often a balancing act of concealing identities and desperately wanting to let it go.
