During lockdown, Bathurst-based artist Nicola Mason found inspiration in the vintage appliances and children’s toys that occupy the interior of her home, as well as from her interactions with the natural world, which has resulted in a series of emotive still life paintings.
“Mason references memento mori symbolism, utilising painting as a vehicle for thinking about living with the land. Her thoughts on nature and culture coalesce on the canvas, enacting contemporary storytelling within her works,” the gallery writes.
