British born New York based Linda Mason is best known for her stong work applying thick, painterly strokes of bright color onto the face and body, transforming her subjects, and the surface of their skin into living canvases, then capturing this sensual work through paintings mixed media on wood, and in short films. In her colorful and expressive acrylic paintings Mason also captures the essence of her subjects focusing as much attention on their interior nature as their exterior appearance. The natural evolution has been the execution of dynamic Installations.
Linda Mason’s artistic career began with makeup. Working in the world of high fashion and beauty alongside top designers, supermodels, and celebrities. She became an influential force in her field for her innovative and creative work, particularly in magazines and runway shows. As her practice expanded into the plastic arts, Mason’s most impressive talents in the way of makeup shine through in her painting, photography, and other endeavors.
