Course Overview

This painting masterclass is for advanced students and established artists who wish to expand the boundaries of their work and push their practice to the next level. Mason Kimber brings an enthusiastic, individually tailored approach with a wide knowledge of painterly techniques and material strategies to help expand the formal and conceptual parameters of your work. The course is suitable for those who engage with both abstraction and figuration and have an interest in the materiality of paint. With an understanding of international contemporary painting practices, Mason will mentor you to develop critically engaged dialogues surrounding your work and to explore new contexts and possibilities. He works closely with you to help to identify and reassess the core principles guiding your work in order to sustain your practice and artistic career into the future, providing an important opportunity for reflection and renewal.

Lecturer Profile

Mason Kimber is an artist who works across painting, sculptural relief and installation. By reworking images, imprints and cast fragments into new compositions, his work registers the histories that accumulate in the built fabric of cities and how they shape our understanding of place. Kimber is currently a PhD candidate at UNSW Art & Design and holds a Master of Fine Art (painting) from the National Art School, where he was awarded a studio residency at the British School at Rome to study ancient fresco paintings. He has also completed residencies in Argentina, Thailand, Venice, and at Artspace, Sydney. Kimber is a lecturer in the painting department at NAS and a tutor in Art Processes & Architecture at the University of Sydney. He is represented by Kronenberg Mais Wright, Sydney and Sophie Gannon Gallery, Melbourne and has been a finalist in the Sulman Prize, Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (Emerging), Geelong Contemporary Art Prize, Sunshine Coast Art Prize and Churchie Prize. Kimber’s work is currently showing as part of the group exhibition ‘MCA Collection: Perspectives on Place’ at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
