Résidence

"Nic Mason's present exhibition of paintings open up spaces to imagine yourself into. Much of the work was created while on residency in Marny-sur-Siene at Camac about an hour out of Paris - these works capture the strangeness of new places, wonderings about their unknown, but suggested stories"
