Original art by Marnie McKnight 

McKnight’s 2024 series entitled ‘Light Reading’ is inspired by her very real love of books, inviting viewers into a tranquil space where boundaries between the world of art and literature blur seamlessly.

There is a timeless elegance to each piece, with subtle hints of vintage fashion adding nostalgia to the scene, or a classic renaissance pose being referenced. Some artworks have complex textures on the clothing or walls, the complicated patterns echoing the intricate layers of the story the reader holds in her hands. Occasionally these patterns are botanical, hinting at a world beyond the confines of the room—a world waiting to be explored through the pages of literature.

The Penguin classic novel with iconic orange and white is synonymous with literary excellence and in this collection, sometimes the title is clear and sometimes it remains obscured, leaving the specific story open to interpretation.

The Light Reading Collection is a celebration of the transformative power and profound connection of art and literature. It invites viewers to pause, reflect, and immerse themselves in the beauty of storytelling by brush and pen—timeless art forms that continue to enrich our lives with endless possibilities.
