Knowlton has been creating spheres since the 1970s. In a variety of sizes and materials, these objects are decidedly hand made but without the clear mark, modernist mark of the artist. The artist engages with issues of materiality in terms of its relationship to the earthly or the cosmic, rather than in an earlier discussion of modeling or carving. Physical Description
