Painting in the studio with Angie Mason: Making the Lost Roads Series.
Watch painting timelapse below!
Wandering the lost roads in my mind leading me to this place this painting. These roads are swollen overgrown forests of memories. I find myself often returning to them in daydreams and thought wanderings.
This place–It’s a lazy summer afternoon joy ride bittersweet in the recall. Its twisted overgrown road of memories— part of you always stays there and pulls you back from time to time to get lost in daydreams delight.
This series of Lost Road Paintings that I am making are an ode to those nostalgic sometimes forgotten memories that take up a distant corner in our minds and hearts.
The memory trips we go down when we let our minds wander seem to always lead us to these lush abandoned lands of memories past where the deep dark wooded paths loom over and the roads are barely painted and have pot holes and bumps and seem to go on forever.
These rough gem roads are a strange comfort to the soul when one gets lost on them. They pull you in giving you bad directions on purpose so your mind wanders but really we always return to our lost roads at some point.
ABOUT THE ARTIST Synopsis:
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 NYC, Berlin Germany as well as having her artwork shown all over the world in numerous group exhibitions. She has also been in the design world working in the toy and publishing industry. "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 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.
