HAZA presents award winning artist, Cynthia Knott; exhibiting over 50 of Knott's large scale oil paintings with her primary focus maintained on the effects of light on the water, the surrounding atmosphere, and the variable transitions that occur.
Knott is known for her in depth exploration of the push and pull that transpires at that elusive point in between the realms. She is not trying to capture an exact moment in time; rather, she prefers to work when conditions are changing at the transition times of day into night, storm into clearing and vice versa. The use of encaustics enables her to transfer this mutability into the works themselves and the finished paintings also change with the shifting light of various times of day.
An acclaimed artist for 30 years, Cynthia has exhibited both in solo and group shows all over the United States and as far away as Japan. Since receiving her Master of Fine Arts from New York University in 1989, she has amassed significant awards, appointments, lecture invitations, and is a two time recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Award. Collected internationally, Cynthia’s pieces have been purchased by such notables as Sir Patrick Stewart, Mercedes Ruehl, and Candice Bergen. Her work is also housed in the Time Warner Corporate Collection and the Geller Family Trust.
HAZA's opening reception will occur on December 8th, 2017 from 6 pm - 9pm and a closing reception will be held on December 31st, 2017 from 3 pm to 7 pm.
