TEMPORAL LANDSCAPES, new plein air paintings by Cindy Mason

February 1 – February 7, 2013
Madeby Gallery, Sarasota, FL

In the exhibition, Mason presents a series of North Carolina and Florida plein air paintings exploring the spirit of place or Genius Loci, a space where meaning is composed of ordered time, a layered space of substances, texture, color and the human psychic framework. Her mark making is an evolution that moves across the surface of the canvas. Gesture and structure become temporal fragmentation composed in space, where multiple actions and events document time as a vast landscape. These spacial relationships presented to the viewer stem from her systematic investigations of the micro- and macrocosm of place.
