LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Raised in Scotland Sarah Knill-Jones studied at the Glasgow School of Art and obtained her Master in Fine Art from the University of the Arts London. Her practice incorporates print making, video, performance and collaborative experiments, but the core remains centred in, on and around paint, as a visceral, human response to the world we live in. The human form and our capacity for the monstrous is a key component, areas of colour create a fusion between image and situation, and partial obliteration lend the works a certain ambiguity and fluidity. Imposed geographical relocation has contributed to the fluidity and a sense of estrangement, as she adapted and allowed disorientation to feed into her practice, at turns a nourishing or destructive influence.
She has had solo exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art Baku and The Centre for Contemporary Art, Baku Azerbaijan. Duo and group shows include Poush Manifesto Clichy, Studio 1.1 and the Tripp Gallery London, The Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh, and also Zagat and Largo das Artes in Rio de Janeiro amongst others. She taught at the Academy of Fine Art in Baku, is co-founder and director of ALOV project Baku, and been on residency with Trélèx in Switzerland, Proyecto ‘Ace Buenos Aires, Despina Rio de Janeiro, and currently with Poush! Manifesto Aubervilliers, Paris. Her work can be found in the collections of The Modern Art Museum Baku, The Victoria and Albert Museum London, The University of Northampton UK and many private collections.
