The library is currently showing Jim Mason’s work in digital photography. Many of the pieces are limited edition giclée canvas prints with rich color and detail. Mason’s work focuses on Pareidolia, or the human tendency to read significance into naturally occurring stimuli. In his compositions of nature, one might see human faces and figures.
Mason achieves this phenomenon through close-up photographs. For example, vibrant and painterly flowers fill the edges of the canvas and ice formations seem to be a work of marbled paper. The subject becomes an arrangement of colors, lines and textures where the viewer’s imagination can interpret new meanings.
