Emily Mason

MILES MCENERY GALLERY is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Emily Mason, made for her second solo presentation with the gallery. A public reception will be held for the artist on 3 January from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at 525 West 22nd Street, and the exhibition will be on view 3 January through 2 February. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated publication, featuring an essay by Elisa Wouk Almino.

Emily Mason’s paintings are bold and vibrant, yet mystifying. Her vivid pools of color guide viewers through a journey of discovery—one that feels transcendent yet simultaneously appeals to our earthly senses. Following her instincts and using her hand to tilt and maneuver each canvas, Mason creates paintings that are pure color in motion, and that appear to expand beyond their edges while slowly unveiling their identities. In this vivid series of works, she lets go of control and allows the oil paint to speak for itself.

While viewers may at first derive meaning from their evocative titles, Mason’s paintings require careful study in order for them to be experienced fully. Each work has an individual climate; one that often evokes both the ferocity and the serenity of the natural world. While her work is never a direct depiction of nature, her process parallels the workings of nature. As Elisa Wouk Almino says, “Mason’s paintings, like elements in nature— an unpredictable wind or gliding, amorphous cloud—have a mind of their own.”
