Mason Kimber is a Sydney-based visual artist whose
work explores the inbetweenness of architecture and memory. His practice deals
with the collision of experienced places—interiors and exteriors connected to
personal stories. Applying an archeological approach to painting, Kimber
creates reliefs, frescoes, collages and site-specific installations through
which fragments of recollection and history are embedded.
Kimber holds a Master of Fine Art (painting) from
the National Art School, Sydney, and was a finalist in the Churchie National
Emerging Art Prize, Sir John Sulman Prize, Sunshine Coast Art Prize, Brett
Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship and the NSW Emerging Visual Arts Fellowship. He has been awarded studio residencies at the British School at
Rome, Italy, Parramatta Artists Studios, Waverley Artists Studios and Artspace,
Sydney. Mason’s work has been aquired by the MCA, Sydney and is held in several private collections. He is currently undertaken a PhD at UNSW Art & Design.
Mason Kimber is represented in Melbourne by
Sophie Gannon Gallery and in Sydney by Kronenberg Mais Wright.
