For the past 32 years Emily Mason has collaborated with five master printers to create works of a singular chromatic intensity, distinguishing and defining her prints as unique.
Each printer offers individual creative direction which Mason modifies or personalizes to further stretch the boundaries of her gestures and color vocabulary.Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to offer a survey of Emily Mason's prints from 1985 - 2016.
This gallery-wide exhibit explores Mason's adventurous approach to contemporary printmaking. Her monoprints, monotypes and solarplate prints epitomize her spontaneous and daring use of color and form.
