The significance of Paul Kneale's production resides as much in the process of creation as well as it does in the final result. His so-called ‘scanner paintings’ are emblematic of the artist's practice. Resulting from productively misusing copying machines, Kneale's works are obtained by making low and high-resolution scans with nothing placed on the copy-bed in order to capture the twinkle of neon light, atmospheric conditions and the trembling light of the studio by keeping the machine's lid open Finally, the resulting file is printed on canvas, where this otherwise obscure microcosm is transposed through the visual lexicon of the digital, which can assume the form of acidic colours, evocative shapes and oblique stripes. The final goal of his scanner paintings is to crystallise – through the gaze of the digital – immaterial entities such as space and time, which we all inhabit but that often elude human perception. To do that, Paul Kneale often creates what he defines as a ‘time sandwich’; a technique consisting in the overlapping of a fast, low-resolution scan over a slow high resolution one. This way, not only several moments in time co-exist and are captured on the same surface, but also two distinct ways of ‘stretching’ time are recorded on the same work.

Kneale also uses everyday objects to address metaphysical questions and ideas. In the ongoing sculptural series ‘Event Horizon’ Paul Kneale employs found objects – thus expanding on the tradition of the readymade – and glass-encased neon components. The title 'Event Horizon' of the original work in the series is a reference to the edge of a black hole, the place from which no light escapes, and thus also where time stops. Here, trash cans, satellite dishes and surveillance mirrors are transformed into contemporary deities by being surrounded by an incandescent halo. The neons themselves are a small simulacrum of the cosmic. They are made using some of the noble gases, such as neon and argon. These gases are contained in glass tubes, and the illumination is activated by high voltage electricity passing through them. However, in sharp contrast with their divinised nature, they also represent objects of transition; transition from using to disposing, from satellite waves to pixels and from reality to distorted records of it. Kneale is interested in the relationship between these abstract, sometimes cosmic theories which exist as ideas, and the scale of the body that both encounters and contemplates things in the world. This series has been developing across several exhibitions and has recently been shown at Palazzo Capris Torino, Moscow Biennale, Rubell Family Collection Miami, Cassina Projects NYC, and Thetis Gardens in the Arsenale Novissimo during the Venice Biennale in 2017. In spring 2018, Kneale had his first solo show Compression in Brussels, which was featured in the Financial Times How to Spend It. In Autumn, his works will be exhibited in Peindre la Nuit, a show taking place at the Centre Pompidou Metz.


Paul Kneale donated the scanner painting "I Job My Love" (2017) to the 2017 Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala Auction, which supports organizations fighting global warming and climate change.


In an interview for Spike, Paul Kneale surprisingly states that digital photography is more akin to traditional painting than to analogue photography. Indeed, while analogue photography is generated by a physical trace left by light on the photographic film (index), digital photography is the result of a process of elaboration and interpretation of the objects of reality, as it happens in traditional painting. Indeed, digital photography – and therefore, by extension, Paul Kneale's scanner paintings – and traditional painting are not a mechanical representation of the elements of reality, but an elaborated reinterpretation of them, mediated in the latter case by the gaze of the human eye and in the former by digital devices which have been programmed according to certain standards by their manufacturers, and subsequently are freely manipulated by the artist.


Paul Kneale obtained a BA in Visual Studies and Art History from University of Toronto. He then moved to the United Kingdom and received his MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art (London) in 2011.
