Thomas McKnight: Windows On Paradise

Overview

The striking success of the previous volume of this artist's work, Thomas McKnight World,no less than the steadily increasing sales of his already popular silkscreen prints, points to a place in the heart that is touched by McKnight's vision. Clearly and strongly, his beautiful images of places near and far appeal to our senses---his lush but subtle color, his charming and elegant compositions, his skillful rendering of form---these qualities we admire and enjoy in the works of master artists of all time.

Overview

The striking success of the previous volume of this artist's work, Thomas McKnight World,no less than the steadily increasing sales of his already popular silkscreen prints, points to a place in the heart that is touched by McKnight's vision. Clearly and strongly, his beautiful images of places near and far appeal to our senses---his lush but subtle color, his charming and elegant compositions, his skillful rendering of form---these qualities we admire and enjoy in the works of master artists of all time. But the element that gives McKnight's works the power to make us respond emotionally is the almost subliminal image of a perfect world that most---probably all---of us profoundly long for. Through the windows of his vision one sees the partly real, partly imagined scenes evoked by his own search of an earthly paradise, and these have an unerring universality that makes them our vision as well.

The wide appeal of McKnight's vision of paradise is, perhaps, explained in part by its sophistication. Even in his scenes of Manhattan skyscrapers and European palaces he makes us dream of native Eden-dwellers feasting on life under swaying palms. At the same time, his idyllic islands in the sun invariably include aspects of the developed culture he considers indispensable. McKnight's paradise has the best of everything---what better definition of heaven can there be?
