Nature Abstracted

@ The Witham

Book Now

17 August 2017 - 09 September 2017

10am - 4pm Tuesday to Saturday

Representations of emotions, social encounters and memories, this exciting body of work presented in Nature Abstracted is in stark contrast to the realist painting and printmaking, which comes from a more Romantic, earthy place, that Anne Mason has become known for. However, it is this flux between practices and disciplines that gives Anne Mason the greatest platform for exploring all of her creative thinking.
The works in Nature Abstracted have been created as a platform from which to explore the power of colour and form, in the largest format available to her within the confines of the artist’s Teesdale studio space.

“Our memory, our image building mechanism does not always recall experiences as ‘photographic reality’. Similarly, my ‘abstract’ work is not abstract in a pure intellectual and austere way. It is representational, it represents the curving, circular, harsh, shrill sounds of our native birds, often, but not always, set in a landscape context. Other works are purely filled with landscape associations, mine shafts, water race, grit, heather, tracks, spaces, hushes, rocks etc.” Anne Mason
