ROMAN REMAINS

 

Mason Kimber

 

 

Mason Kimber’s recent work stems from a fascination with the various styles of spatial illusion depicted in Pompeian fresco painting. Drawing from architectural schemes and motifs that aimed to suggest a scene beyond the wall, his images flicker between perspective and surface, interior and exterior space. What results are facade-like entryways to a stage where fragments of half-remembered objects remain on the verge of dissolving like the visual traces of a memory.
