A Floridian by birth, Costanza Knight spent her summers in Saluda, North Carolina, where she took painting lessons from her father, also an artist. Her first realization that she wanted to study art formally came when she was attending university in Florence, Italy. She studied art there and at the University of North Carolina in Asheville. Post graduate studies in printmaking and bodycasting have further informed her work.
Poetry and narratives are frequently Knight’s inspiration. She interprets them by creating a series of paintings that actually tell a story. Her figurative work often takes place in a gravity free world and represents humankind in both states of joy and pathos. As a former speech and language pathologist, she sees a direct connection between teaching communication and interpreting the human experience through her artwork.
Knight has shown throughout the Southeast in group, juried and solo exhibitions. Her paintings are included in university and private collections throughout the U.S. A resident of Hendersonville, North Carolina, Knight’s studio is at 6 Whitehall Lane.
