Abstraction of Colour application: Nick Knight

My collection is based on the abstraction of colour and the ways colour has been manipulated and used to portray a new image or to add emotion and a different aesthetic to a work of art...from photography/ fashion to the fine art works of on of my favourite artists Francis Bacon!


Whilst doing my research I looked into the work of renowned photographer Nick Knight. Knight has produced some of the worlds most beautiful fashion photography

I love his his use of colour to depict the tone and style of photography and create another level of physical presence of the colours

Knight has captured some of the most famous supermodels including Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.

The way in which he uses colour to redefine the image and bring in an somewhat abstract and surreal aesthetic to the image. 

SHOWstudio is a fashion website that I found out about when looking more into Nick Knight's work. He founded the site in 2000 and is the director. SHOWstudio aims to constantly and consistently push the boundaries of the communication of fashion on the web.
I find that SHOWstudio’s innovative and ground-breaking way of presenting fashion projects have defined the way fashion can be brought to a whole new level of creativity through film and can be a form of Art has collaborated with some of the most influential and acclaimed figures of modern fashion. This list includes John Galliano, Kate Moss, Maison Martin Margiela, Comme des Garçons and the late Alexander McQueen. has also supported emerging talents like Gareth Pugh, Louise Goldin, Marios Schwab and Rodarte.
