Sophie Lourdes Knight (born 1992) explores the hierarchical value structures placed upon objects in her contemporary practice. Questioning prescribed notions of beauty and value, Knight’s large-scale works on canvas provide space for banal, everyday objects such as engines, light bulbs and architectural designs to sit alongside more traditional objects of beauty such as jewellery and chandeliers.
Knight studied at California College of the Arts, graduating with a BFA in 2014, and at the Slade School of Fine Art, graduating with an MFA in 2022. Her work has recently been shown in solo exhibitions in Los Angeles and Boston, as well as group exhibitions at the Royal Academy in London, the San Jose Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Golden Foundation, New York. In both 2019 and 2020, she was the recipient of a grant from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation.
Knight lives and works in London.
