Chris Mason is an accomplished multidisciplinary artist whose practice stems from extensive research. Working with media including painting, drawing, sculpture, and ceramics, Mason depicts subjects as diverse as trains, aircraft, snakes and voluptuous women. Both idiosyncratic and humorous, Mason’s works are often inspired by photographs and images that he collects online. Chris Mason has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 1997. He has presented three solo exhibitions, two at Arts Project Australia, Melbourne (2002, 2007), and at Darren Knight Gallery, Sydney (2014). He has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions at Spring 1883, Sydney; Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), Hobart; Artspace, Sydney; West Space, Melbourne; Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, Philadelphia; and Linden New Art, Melbourne. His work is held in private collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; State Library of Victoria, Melbourne; and National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.
