Ellen's Artist Statement:

Ellen Mason continues to explore her interest in the landscape. Although not site specific, her paintings on canvas and paper using acrylic, oil and conte-crayon evoke her time spent in Connecticut and Florida.

The abstract approach she implements in capturing the essence of her natural surroundings, results in passages dealing with mark making, tension, and references to organic forms.
