Combining sculpture, painting and drawing, Dean Knight constructs open-ended narratives that intersperse the primitive, the comedic, the seductive and the grotesque. A self-conscious and tongue-in-cheek take on an obsessive and objectifying male artist is explored, along with the role of the gay man as clown or peripheral deviant. 

Previous solo exhibitions include Modern Sculpture, Project Space 11, Plymouth, 2010 and It’s Not Me, It’s Shoe, CMR Project Space, Redruth, 2019. Dean has spent the last year developing new work for an exhibition The Sensitive Gaze, funded by Arts Council England.
