Mason Kimber (National Art School, Sydney, Resident, April – June 2014) explores the subjective nature of memory through architecture and painterly abstraction. Kimber’s recent work stems from a fascination with the depiction of architectural illusion in Pompeiian-style frescos. Drawing from ancient pictorial devices such as internal framing and the fictional extension of depth, his images strike an ambiguous balance between the suggestion of perspective and the flatness of the picture plane.

Mason Kimber (National Art School, Sydney, Resident, aprile – giugno 2014) esplora la natura ambigua della memoria attraverso l’architettura e la pittura astratta. Il recente lavoro di Kimber nasce dall’interesse per la rappresentazione dell’illusione architettonica degli affreschi in stile Pompeiano. Sfruttando antiche tecniche pittoriche come l’inquadratura interna e l’estensione illusoria dello spazio, le sue immagini danno vita ad un ambiguo equilibrio tra suggestione prospettica e piattezza del piano pittorico.
