The KNOW Contemporary presents LESS IS MORE by Knowledge Bennett and ONTO SOMETHING by YoYo Lander. Curated by Charles Moore. There will be an opening reception held on September 11, 2021 from 7-9pm. See below for RSVP link.
Less Is More features five new works by Los Angeles-based contemporary artist Knowledge Bennett, four of which are his largest works to date (one in particular stands at a towering 10ft in height and spans 21ft across). These monumental-sized, shaped canvases are fashioned in Bennett’s minimalist signature style, in which the canvases’ surfaces are enveloped in all-black diamond dust punctuated by lines that form two-dimensional geometric shapes.
“While the viewer is limited by the length and width of each piece, the overarching depth creates a viewer kinetic experience not unlike walking into the cosmos, or—as critics note—taking in Vieques, Puerto Rico’s bioluminescent Mosquito Bay,” said Moore. This treatment creates depth and spatiality in the works, which is reinforced by the canvases’ geometric forms. Each of the canvases on view differ in shape, from square, circle, triangle, and rectangle, which in turn serve as symbolic objects that reference both the artist’s interest in spirituality and mathematics.
