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.
