Forrest Knight / December 2021
Forrest Knight is an oil painter that works out of his studio in the Salmon Falls Mills. Knight received a BFA in painting from MassArt in 2013. He was awarded the Ellen Battell Stoekel Fellowship at Yale Norfolk, Gambling Paint Award, and the Paul Celli Award, in recognition of his artistic achievements.
"These paintings are collages of daily experience. Recently encountered media, interruptions of memory, daydreams, outside stressors, waste, the debris of the day, are all altering forces in the experience of images, nature, or any participation. Perception becomes reprocessed through screen, separated by fantasy, small escapes. These layers become a second nature, a more real observation of nature, a divergent reality of outside influence on internal experience."
