The paintings of Kiata Mason form an ongoing meditation on objecthood, and the formative bonds between materiality and memory. Capturing quiet domestic scenes in her family home, the mid north coast-based artist considers the ways in which objects collected over generations tether us to personal, cultural and imagined histories.
Mason’s still lifes function as physical constellations of memory, materialised within intimate, lived-in spaces. Her new series, The Artist’s Table, revolves around ideas of empathy and acceptance originally researched during her Master’s degree.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 13 February 2020
