“Traversing” by Mary Knott

Artwork

Although boats and water feature in many of her artworks, Mary Knott (b. 1942) conveys a strong sense of stillness and quiet in her works. This is very evident in “Traversing”, in which Knott has used pastel, gesso and bitumen media to create a painting which asks for a moment of contemplation. The elements within her art take on a symbolic presence. This artist has lived in the South West for some decades and currently resides in Dunsborough. This work was made in 1992 and acquired by the City of Bunbury in 1993.
