"As a visual person having a wide scope of all visual angles allows for me to constantly examine ideas in new ways that allow for greater discovery and growth within myself and the work."
Angie Mason is a mid-career artist, born in Northern New Jersey and a graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York City. Her prolific visual career has crossed many creative boundaries. Having had solo exhibits in NY, Berlin Germany as well as having her artwork shown in galleries and museums all over the world in numerous group exhibitions as well as being published in several art books. She has also worked in the design world working in the toy and publishing industry.
Angie visually explores the darkness and light we face in life through the creation of character narrative works. Primarily she presents the work as paintings and drawings. Varied influences are found within her work ranging from such things as nature, love, relationships, dreams, memories, humor, loss and health to name a few.
These mixed influences cause a balance of light and dark that intermingle with each other creating a visual playground, bringing to life quirky characters that are beautifully rendered yet with a painterly hand giving them an innocent raw touch. Mason's works are both horrific and humorous yet speaks of what it means to be human.
