Nicola Mason: Cycle

Sat 9 April - Sun 5 June

For artist Nicola Mason, staying home through recent lockdowns has suited her creative lifestyle. In her domestic setting, nostalgic household appliances, loved kids’ toys, and finds from her daily walks with her four-legged friends all make appearances in the theatre of her still-life works.

Mason references memento mori symbolism, utilising painting as a vehicle for thinking about living with the land. Her thoughts on nature and culture coalesce on the canvas, enacting contemporary storytelling within her works. Here she challenges the still-life genre where subjects are traditionally presented as binary, instead blurring the boundaries between the natural world and the man-made.

Mason was the recipient of a Create NSW Small Project Grant for development of work for this exhibition.
