Knack Studio's professionalism, craftsmanship and
attention to detail is unparalleled in my experience of working with art
Because of their art backgrounds, they understand working
with artists, and within the context of working in the public art realm, they
have the skills to communicate effectively with a wide array of
Over the last decade of doing a variety of public art commissions I have
worked with many different fabricators, consultants, and project managers. The
last three projects, the most recent completed in June 2011, have been
fabricated by KNACK Studio. I have also used KNACK Studio as a consultant
for two jobs.
Drew and Ralph are extremely professional, produce work of exceptional
quality and skill, and are a pleasure to work with. They have a wide
range of experience and skill with various artmaking materials, and
are creative and thorough in their analysis of how a project needs to be built
and maintained. Their attention to detail and craftsmanship are
exceptional. During artwork installation in the field,
KNACK's level of experience with construction materials and
methods enables them to work seamlessly with construction crews on site
and provide any guidance needed to the artist in order to insure the best
possible outcome for the project.
KNACK Studio can be counted on to deliver an immaculate artwork in a
timely manner. They are great!
The forms I make are technically horrendous, and demand
an honest and personal tactility. Knack
Studio manages to build these monsters beautifully.
But there’s more, the work must grow and
develop through its fabrication, as it would if I were making it
myself. Ralph and Drew bring a deeply simpatico creativity to our
collaboration without ever taking over.
They have become a continuance of my hand in the work.
