Ellen Mason continues to explore her interest in the landscape. Although not site specific, her paintings and drawings results in passages dealing with mark making, tension and references to organic forms. Her work is built up with a series of marks that are layered, and often opened up to create either delicate or bold statements. Process has always been a key element in her work. Ms. Mason loves to explore different mediums and her recent drawings in conte crayon, pastel and ink have transcended her work to a new level of awareness.
