What does the eye do when in contact with one of Kassia Knap's canvases ? Could we even talk of a canvas, in the sense of a painted surface ? Precisely because the eye cannot simply « glide » or wander over leisurely on an even surface. It would rather have to climb, to scale the mountain trying to catch hold of the steep rock face, made of faults in which to slide, as well as promontories that are hard to climb. The eye, losing its balance, catches hold as best it can but the ascent is no small feat.
