Dan Mason is an emerging Australian artist.
He has a Visual Arts major from Griffith University where he studied a Bachelor of Arts degree and has been selected as a finalist in several regional and national art prizes, including The Churchie Emerging Art Award.
His abstracted mixed media approach allows him the freedoms to explore differing surface tensions and interactions, even when painting percievably realistic subjects.
He applies dramatic, free-flowing brushstrokes, paint pours, swirls, plays with differing levels of opacity and often finds greater resolution by scraping paint away from the surface than applying it. Luscious oils are interjected by the movement of spray paint, acrylics and enamels repel and simultaneously find peace within eachother.
Mason's work captures movement and energy that is best appreciated in the flesh.
"The experience of spending months at sea, as a child, on the ships that my father worked on, and being a lifetime surfer has shaped my love and appreciation of open spaces and our natural environment."
