Todd Knopke Turns Fabric Into Paint

Todd Knopke

We posted Todd Knowpke’s work a while back but he has some new works on his site so it’s time to take a second look. When i first saw Todd’s work online I thought “wow these are funky shaped stretchers.” It took me a few minutes to realize that I was staring at massive, mind blowing, sewn pieces of fabric! What I love best is that Todd keeps all the various moves that most painters make  but makes them his own by introducing sewn fabric into the mix. The result is a collage like surface full of stitching, layered fabric, and awesome detail.

    I’m seeing a duo show with Julian Duron here. I also think I see Weezy as a park ranger. Nice use of khaki pockets as well.
