Jasper Knight brings to­gether a vi­brant ex­hi­bi­tion of his works from the last decade of his ca­reer. Blur­ring the bound­aries be­tween high art and am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­phy, be­tween sculp­ture and paint­ing, his works explore the re­la­tion­ship be­tween ma­te­rial and sub­ject. His prac­tice is char­ac­terised by his use of broad pri­mary colours that dom­i­nate his por­traits and de­pic­tions of icons, and ev­ery­day ob­jects found in the ur­ban land­scape. Not lim­ited to one me­dia, Jasper’s works, of­ten an as­sem­blage of ev­ery­day found ob­jects are rem­i­nis­cent of the prac­tices of Dada, Sur­re­al­ist and Pop Art move­ments. Jasper’s works will in­trigue the viewer, ques­tion­ing con­ven­tions of art prac­tice and the ev­ery­day. Bro­ken Hill Re­gional Art Gallery Open­ing 22 Au­gust
