About For Salvation

Located in the reception area of the AC Hotel, For Salvation is an acrylic on canvas art installation by Ben Knight. His work is meant to capture your eye, lead it to see color and light in ways that are unfamiliar. And, because these works are bold gestures of life, they tend to explode of the canvas more as a 3 dimensional sculpture than traditional paintings. Speed, light, color and texture represent the content of Knight’s observations of the world around us.

Speed, light, color and texture represent the content of my observations of the world around us. All essential painting reveals and reflects on these subjects. This is my focus as a painter and these concepts drive the character of my work. It is the ability to capture time with the beauty of color and texture that makes for a great picture and my work is meant to capture your eye, lead it to see color and light in ways that are unfamiliar. And, because these works are bold gestures of life, they tend to explode off the canvas more as a 3 dimensional sculpture than traditional paintings. Contrast moves one’s eye and one’s mind. Painting that, consistently, is my goal.
