ARTIST STATEMENT

I’m Melissa Knight. I was born in Anchorage, Alaska but have lived most of my life in California. In my art and in my life, I am interested in the relationship between underlying and surface structures…in their formation and ongoing interaction. I am interested in the evolution of human consciousness. In particular, my work deals with the relationship between the reaching to realize our potential (enlightenment), and enjoying the journey along the way. While the wiser among us will tell me there is no conflict here, my egoist self clings to a mutual exclusivity of these two ideals. I am interested in the relationship between manifesting/envisioning a future and living in the NOW…

Melissa Knight  Fine Art

Markalan - Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Markalan moved to Pacific Beach in 1994. During his first four years in San Diego, he worked as a photographer for the United States Navy. Over the past decade, he's been behind the bar or turntables in many of San Diego's nightclubs, and venues. He's shared his musical selections with Southern & Baja California, and the Mayan Riviera. During these years, he could be found exchanging his time for vinyl at Groove Records and Siesta Records. 

He often worked for trade, to support his vinyl addiction. He currently owns over 8,000 records. "Listening to my father's albums is when it all began. Flipping through the stacks, cleaning off the LP, placing the needle on the record, reading the lyrics, studying the artwork, and enjoying the rich analog sound. Sure, there are occasional pops & you might have to clean the record. You actually have to flip the record at the end of the side. It's not a play list or program on shuffle. You are present, involved, and engaged in the listening process. 
Please Keep Vinyl Alive & Support Local Artists!"
