Knill-Jones’ practice consists of diverse threads anchored in the exploration of paint as a relevant medium in our increasingly technological world. While paint is at the core of her practice, other medium contribute to it. She considers her works as unpredictable experiments which hover between the ethereal and the concrete, with which she frequently brings to question the value of the original through processes of copying, unpicking, un-doing.

The political context of Azerbaijan, where she lived for five years, had a significant impact on the development of her work, reflected in her project “Dis-Appearing Woman”. The impact of her current choice of location in Brazil remains to be seen.
