My process in painting this piece was to start abstractly and then "let the Image emerge." The woman was fleshed out with black outlines, and the child emerged from the woman. Going into the painting, I did not know the "subject matter." The ideas developed from an organic process.
The main driving ideas behind my work are spontaneity and experimentation.
Hello, my name is Tony Knaak. I am interested in the healing aspects of space, shape, line and color. Like stained glass windows, I hope for spiritual freedom in the field of abstraction. Innovation and exploration guide me to paint, while my imagination and restless nature point me in the direction of deeper waters. I hope you will join me on this journey into the unknown. For both artist and art collector, the challenge lies in the seeing AND the believing. Come and explore with me!
