Richard Mason

Drawing on our anxieties of the digital age and the speed at which technology has become our environment, Mason uses industrial materials and processes to produce intricate works that explore what he calls “our merging with the reality of the virtual.” Influenced by object-orientated philosophy, 80’s design, and art ranging from perceptual abstraction to post-graffiti, he uses the language of technology reflected back on itself. Mason’s paintings parade the superficial glow of colourful chemicals across ultra-flat industrial surfaces which combine to impact strongly on the viewer.
