Dale Knaak: Artist Statement
As an independent artist I see my paintings as a point of contemplation, a contemporary statement on past and present, kept. Study through the spirit of self-expression, cultivated by life experiences. Allowing me the freedom of discovery.
Working primarily in the studio, my focus has been on still life painting, the urban landscape and the human form. My work explores a fascination with the conventional spaces and objects of the everyday. Satisfaction comes not from the finished painting, but from the process. And paramount to that process is the drawing. I’m also intrigued by subtle shifts in color, value, texture and how light shapes form and structure. I find it interesting to process and reinterpret a visual observation, into a personal experience.
