Erin Knight

Erin Knight is a Perth based artist and educator who works across mediums of painting and sculpture. This current body of work explores mixed media to create rich, evocative and surreal spaces. Working with acrylics, oils, gold leaf and collage her works uses animal and plant life to create scenes rich in metaphor. Erin has been an art educator for over 28 years, always indulging in her own practice throughout those years occasionally exhibiting in group shows and completing commissions in both sculpture and 2D works. This body of work however is significantly different to her practice and signifies a change in direction. The use of mixed media has liberated the acquisition of imagery and enabled the creative process to flow in a more intuitive way. Nets are a common inclusion and serve to be symbolic of what holds us together, restricts us, the networks we create and the systems that give us life.
