Corey Mason

Corey Mason's art is visually awkward but also culturally indeterminate. Inspired by pigments from the Palaeolithic Age, his work often refers to the caves of Lascaux and Chauvet as readily as it does Picasso's minotaur paintings. Yet, his ceramic images suggest Mesoamerican as well as European references. These depicted motifs are often playful, trivial or deliberately ambiguous, and Mason’s deceptively simple visual language sees him translating images of timebound objects—whether European Delftware or Mesoamerican pottery—into jazzy, off-kilter improvisations that ultimately transcend a specific time or place.
