Michael Knight generally undertakes several private commissions each year including portraits, landscapes or abstract works. Some recent examples and buyer comments are included below.
Commission 2012, Gin Gin, Western Australia
“To feel a sense of trepidation is commissioning a painting.
We really liked Michael’s previous works and so we asked him to interpret a sentimental landscape (to us, of course). We are delighted with the painting that he has made and so glad that we did this.”
Glimpse of Beermullah Lake, oil on linen, 2012.
Commission 2011, Perth
“Michael not only gave us a beautiful and extremely thought-provoking painting, he really listened to the fundamentals of what I was wanting to convey and put it into a concept that is simple and yet so very evocative. He also delivered the painting well in time for my wife’s birthday, making it a special event.” The Gift, oil and collage on canvas, 2011
“Michael’s painting is, appropriately, one of the most precious gifts I have been given. He has managed to capture so much on the canvas that he has touched not only myself and my husband, but also every person who comes to our home. It is striking and subtle, clear and yet complex. I love it and thank him for bringing such beauty to our home.” The Gift, oil and collage on canvas, 2011
Commission 2011, Adelaide
“Michael provided our family with a lively and beautiful memory of a sorely missed mother and grandmother. His attention to detail and his sensitivity at a difficult time were greatly appreciated. We treasure her portrait and it provides enormous solace in our house.” Gillian and Eric, oil and collage on canvas, 2011.
Commission 2009, Sydney
“You have a distinctive signature which pervades all your landscapes and the brave, bold use of strong colours, blended with ‘soft’ elements (often in foreground vegetation, trees, etc) is masterful. We both believe there’s a brilliance, and powerful individuality, that permeates all your landscape works.” Palm Beach, oil on canvas, 2009
