Project Ability is proud to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Aspire artist Tommy Mason.
In celebration of World Autism Day, we will be taking over the Trongate 103 foyer walls with a truly unique and exciting array of large scale abstract paintings.
Tommy has been working with Project Ability for over 25 years, and the studio would not be the same without him. He helps to make Project Ability a creative and positive environment, and we are always happy to have the opportunity to share his art with the public.
Tommy Mason’s style is one of a kind. Once you have seen his work you will forever recognize A Tommy Mason. He has a quietly bold colour palette and his renditions of real life are beyond our wildest imagination. He creates his work almost effortlessly, without hesitation or self-consciousness. He is much loved in the studio by tutors and fellow artists alike for his warmth and inspirational creativity. With a playful sense of humor he composes his canvases full of his signature people/animals and trees. Despite having a strict vocabulary of forms, Tommy Mason’s artworks are always changing and evolving; he is an artist who carries forward his subjects from one painting to the next whilst keeping them fresh and unique.
In addition to large canvases, Tommy can be found filling up sketchbook upon sketchbook. He is as prolific an artist as they come, and is happy to work with pens, pencils, paint and more. We could fill the Tate Modern ten times over with the artworks he has made here at Project Ability, but for now we will be exhibiting a selection of his newest and largest paintings here at Trongate 103.
There will be a closing event on the Friday 28th April, 12pm-1pm. Everybody welcome!
