“My work is influenced by the unexpected details found when observing something up close. While some may see randomness, I see a natural organization of layers and patterns. Using a building-up approach, I interpret the complexity and beauty I discover.”
Katia Mason employs an explorative process of adding, deleting and building up, using a variety of media to create depth and movement. Mason will talk about her current work, “Beneath the Surface,” which is heavily influenced by the ocean. She resides and works in Gloucester, MA and summers with her husband Bill at the family summer home in Corea, ME. She has a B.A. from The College of New Rochelle and continues studying privately and at Montserrat College of Art, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.
