The new group of oil paintings by Toronto-based artist Kris Knight, A Deadly Nightshade, wanders through that interdimensional space between fact and fiction, dreams and nightmares, this world and the next. Snatching from French symbolism and Sturm und Drang, Knights ten canvases at Spinello Gallery depict mini-narratives in the brightly burning lives of misfit friends. They skinny-dip at midnight and hold secret ceremonies in caves. They live out there under cover of darkness.
