Williams, Knena

Knena Williams is an artist residing in Spanaway, Washington.  She captures the beauty of nature by the way of photography and painting.  Her work also uses light and shadow in combination with her voluminous sculptures.  The exposed lit surfaces capture a colorful play of airy shapes and forms to created paint-like compositions with digital photography.  Knena’s work is expressive and ethereal.  She is an artist that continues to mature through her work.

“I like creating stories to stir up images and concepts that I later take to construct several visual compositions.  Unlike a storyboard, the viewing experience does not tell a story of sequenced events, but of environments.  Light and shadow is the driving inspiration behind my work, which sheds an ethereal view on everyday materials. My work utilizes a mixture of mediums and techniques.  I love light and color!”

I am intrigued by the battle of manufactured products versus the handmade.  I wondered to myself…is it possible for these two movements to meet?  The design ethics of the future may continue to rebel against the manufactured and easily consumed world of commercialism.  Identity may play more of a role that will evolve from picking your color to make your mark!  Lotus was Gilbert, a chair design from Ikea.  I decided to take my love for everything floral and carve my “I was Here” into a standard ebony lacquered chair.  It now has a spirit.  Let’s face it…if you can’t bet them…join them!
