Rochelle Mason, Painter

Rochelle Mason, PainterRaising awareness about endangered species and animals that get little public attention because they're not big or popular or simply because we're taught to dislike them is what my art is all about.

My Mom taught me the most valuable lesson about animals when I was young: "respect them and learn from them". At the time, I was "dealing" with a spider.

Knowing most people don't like "unpopular" animals such as snakes and spiders and bats and bugs, it became my personal mission to change their perceptions about these misunderstood creatures. And, it's been a race against time as more and more animals slide towards extinction.

My new series of abstract paintings reveals alluring attributes of these animals, so ambiguous viewers get immersed in currents of color, eddies of paint and intriguing, whimsical shapes that beg a closer look, inviting curiosity and fascination.

A science degree in Veterinary Technology, neatly tucked in my back pocket, has been advantageous in understanding the anatomy of what I’m painting, from arthropod skeletal structure to wing venation. I also weave my interests in cosmology and quantum mechanics into my work by defining loose, spontaneous brush strokes, adding minute details and offering close-up perspectives.
