InLiquid presents Visual Symbolic Expression, featuring the work of artist member Jack Knight at the Crane Hall. The colorful paintings of Jack Knight originated from Geometric Abstraction to what he now refers to as “Visual Symbolic Expression.” While Knight builds his work around symbolism, he ultimately leaves it to the viewer to interpret and reflect on the content of the composition and how the visual symbols relate to them.
Knight was born in Welland, Ontario, Canada, and grew up in western New York. He graduated from Buffalo State College with a BS Degree in Art Education and New York State Teaching Certification. With a scholarship from the Buffalo Foundation he attended the Graduate School of Art & Architecture at State University of New York at Buffalo and received a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Painting in 1976.
Knight has had more than 100 exhibits including 15 solo exhibits. He has also received numerous awards for his artwork and is represented in several corporate, museum and private collections, including the Bank of Boston, Pennsylvania Bank & Trust, Milton Bradley Company, Ernst & Young, Occidental Chemical, Springfield Newspapers, Burchfield Penney Art Center, Schenectady Museum and the Southern Vermont Art Center.
