About Penny Mason
My practice is based on encounters with points of stasis within a continuum of movement and flux. I use the characteristic instability of water and pigment (watercolour media and inks) to generate aleatory and unplanned connections between vast and miniscule spaces, surfaces and details within.
The resulting images are suggestive of landscape features, cosmic events and microscopic worlds. The work continues a preoccupation with the fragilty of ecosystems and the cultures they sustain.
