Knife Art

Knife art is a form of blade art that is used widely in kitchens and other room around the home. This art category doesn't only include cutlery of the butter knife variety, however. It also includes the knives that are used for the preparation of food. These works can be graphic or representational in nature and are a highly popular option for people who are looking for 'edgy' style that has a lot of versatility to offer.

Knife art has been pursued by several modern artists. Like most artwork featuring cutlery, there are a diverse range of culinary subjects to choose from, whether the subject is fine dining or homely locales. However, there is one important difference when it comes to knife art: the blade. Because of the graphic and psychological effect on people who see the sharp blades in this art category, many artists decide to use this dramatically appealing item as its own subject, rather than as a symbol of food. This means that, unlike spoon or fork art, there's a place for knife art outside of the kitchen.

Andy Warhol, the famous pop artist, was fascinated with the graphic possibilities of culinary knives and made several different studies of them in 1981 and '82. Although these works aren't as well-known as his art depicting celebrities and mass-consumerism, they possess a wide range of possibility, color, and different pop art styles.

Another artist that depicted knives as a subject of their own was Erin Clark. Her work 'Sharp Edges' is portrayed in shades of black and gray on a white background and exudes equal amounts of intimacy and menace as the sharp aggression of the upright blades contrasts with the familiarity of the subject matter.

Knife art is a category that lends itself to graphic depiction which, in turn, gives this art many unique possibilities in the field of interior design. Its combination of shock value and familiar appeal make knife art perfect for modern styles that want to add some rebellious flair to their decor options.
