ABOUT THE WORK
"Nothing should make sense. If it makes sense it’s not interesting anymore. Anyways, what does it mean to have one way of making art or one style. Who made the rules anyway?"
Corey Mason's expressive work has been likened to that of Twombly, Matisse, and Picasso and his paintings have recently attracted the notice of important curators in New York, Los Angeles, London, and Berlin. Mason’s confident linework and his halo-like layers of intentional smudges and fingerprints present an insistent tactility and immediacy that recalls the Paleolithic cave paintings of France and Spain. Mason’s motifs, which include pottery, animals, flowers, fruit, and athletes, are both local and global. They suggest the intimacy and comfort of domestic spaces while simultaneously pointing to larger histories of transatlantic trade, migration and cross-cultural influence.
