Knight Webb Gallery is a contemporary art space in Brixton, London. The gallery represents a selection of experienced mid career artists and. We opened in 2012 and made quick progress into the international art market, through exhibiting at fairs such as Art Miami and Volta. The gallery program brings together artists with strong narratives combined with an intimate relationship with their chosen medium. Interesting art collections reflect the prevalent challenges in art and society, and to this end Knight Webb Gallery work with artists who explore the social function of art.
Anders Knutsson was born in Malmö, Sweden where he studied art and engineering. In 1967 he moved to the United States and began experimenting with waxes, varnishes and oils in various combinations in the late 1960s. He created a paste by grinding dry pigments into his paint, which gave him complete control of the materials including the viscosity and transparency of the paint allowing him to manipulate these variables independently of each other. By reducing his paintings to pure colour, Anders is inviting the viewer to explore the medium of paint away from any social or art historical context.
