New Work from Kris Knight

We recently checked in on Canadian based painter Kris Knight to follow up this Hi-Fructose post. He sent over some terrific new work, featuring his signature tightly focused portraits along with some group portraiture celebrating the rituals of seasonal changes. Through a soft color palette and warm light, the pale figures have an air of androgyny, adding a unique element of identity to the new works. Crowned with candles or masked with lace, their lost gazes suggest a subtle apathy while their appearances illustrates all the beauty of youth. View more images of the new work after the jump.
