Artwork of the Week – ‘Gangster Scene at Hotdog Stand’ by Tommy Mason

Our Artwork of the Week takes one last look at our current exhibition, ‘Flashback to February’. This show, our first virtual exhibition at Project Ability, features a wonderful selection of paintings made in the Project Ability studios in the lead up to March 2020 – lockdown.

This particular painting was created by Aspire artist Tommy Mason. It is a large stretched canvas titled ‘Gangster Scene at Hotdog Stand’. It is a striking image, and the use of text is a first for the artist. We love the bold colours and, as always, we love seeing one of Mason’s signature figures – front and centre. All of us at Project Ability are really missing the artists, their energy and their work. March seems a long time ago now!

You can see this painting on the exhibition page, and also in our online exhibition shop!
