Paul Knight

Australia Council for the Arts Residency

Paul Knight is a visual artist from Melbourne. Paul is interested in how intimacy is constructed and communicated through the photographic image. He documents private moments that are at once banal and emotionally charged.

Paul won the prestigious Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship in 2007. That same year he was the winner of the William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize at the Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, and was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries, United Kingdom.

Australia Council for the Arts

Since 1992, the Australia Council for the Arts has partnered with Acme to provide London work/live residency opportunities for Australian visual artists. These residencies are located at Acme's Fire Station in Poplar, E14. Application and selection is undertaken directly by the Australia Council for the Arts.
