Dock [Quai]

Katherine Knight

Date de naissance 1955
Lieu de naissance Ottawa, Ontario

Toronto-based artist Katherine Knight captures the quiet moments before a humid summer storm in this black and white photograph from her series called The Bubble, created between 1998-2001 at Lake Scattergood in the Gatineau Hills. Known for here landscape-based photographic work, Knight seeks to capture the intangible qualities of air, light, and stillness. Here, she conjures a fleeting summer moment: children in the process of making large soap bubbles, which, in this series, become metaphors for impermanence and inevitable change.
