Maija McKnight

Maija McKnight’s artwork is an exploration of pattern, celebration of color, and experimentations with the luminosity of metal. Working with copper sheet as a canvas, the metal is modified through a process of embossing and folding and then painted and sealed. The abstracted composition is intended to evoke a feeling and response of joy conducive to the curvilinear lines, repeating patterns and shapes, vibrant color and reflectivity of the metal surface.
