Rhys Knight (Visual artist, Australia)
Residency period: August – September
Rhys Knight is a Visual Artist based in Latrobe Valley, Australia. From a young age, Rhys demonstrated an interest in the aesthetics of horror and began developing his artistic ability around this interest. Initially working towards a career in games design, Rhys shifted his focus toward Visual Art and started building his own practice. After years of study, he developed a great understanding of painting which eventually expanded to include skills in drawing and photography as part of his repertoire. With these newly developed skills, his early interest in horror provided a conceptual framework for his work. Exploring themes relating to death, mortality, theology and existentialism, his work has now been exhibited across Australia, featured in numerous publications, album covers and has sold internationally.
Residency period: July-August
