“ Taking Flight is an exhibition that invites the viewer to experience the drama and grace of raptors and shore birds as they maneuver through their world.”
Karen Mason expresses a unique contemporary flair in her “Taking Flight” series through the combination of bold lines, vibrant texture and luminous atmosphere. The effect she achieves in her oil paintings is influenced by her study of watercolor washes and glazing techniques.
Birds seem all knowing as they twist and turn their heads, absorbing the vocal world around them. In the midst of which they seem fully engaged – abruptly jumping, twisting, and plunging from the security of a tree branch, with no notice or particular reason. Others demonstrate skill and grace in pushing off terra firma into the open sky, seeking a target to land and encompass with their talons. Meanwhile, shore birds appear so independent and unconcerned until one glimpses something of interest. Quickly all others mimic the move, rapidly diving into competitive unison. Mason captures such moments in her “Taking Flight” series with a distinctive palette and open spaces, allowing the viewer to focus in on the subject, its movements in flight, soaring pelicans and shore birds to raptors in continuous motion.
Karen Mason’s paintings can be found in private and corporate collections in the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Italy, and France. She believes that such growing international interest is grounded in her having learned to “look at the world” rather than just see it.
