Reception: Friday\, October 8\, 7 - 10pm
< br />Brigid Mason paints obj ects from her collection\; items the artist claims she did not actively see k out. All were gifted to the artist by friends\, lovers and admirers over the years. Mason thinks of painting as a form of active contemplation and t hat by painting seemingly familiar objects from direct observation\, she ac tively participates in revealing their mysterious history. Some of the obje cts in her oeuvre include animal parts\, decaying pieces of tattered clothe s\, playing cards\, and plaster casts of teeth.

"The objects that we surround oursel ves with in our day-to-day lives offer a window into our experience. We inv est objects with our emotions. Sometimes we keep things for reasons we don’ t even understand. Certain objects can remain mysterious to us\, even when we feel that we know them so well."

Brigid Mason was born in New York City in 1984 an d recieved her BFA in Painting (with Honors) from the Rhode Island School o f Design (RISD) in 2006. In 2010 she obtained an MFA in drawing and paintin g at the California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco. She current ly resides in Los Angeles.
