Trained as an architect and fascinated by the overlap and edges of topographies, Cynthia Mason makes soft paintings and mixed media constructions that scramble the spatial and material codes of painting and sculpture. Mason’s work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in the United States.
Mason received her MFA at the University of South Florida and BFA from Ringling College. She is the recipient of a Professional Artists Grant from Creative Pinellas, an Honorable Mention in the Visual Arts by CAA, two Florida Artist Enhancement Grants, and has been selected for numerous artist residencies including The Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico, The Carrizozo Artists in Residence Program in Carrizozo, NM, Jentel Artist Residency Program in Banner, Wyoming; and the School of Visual Arts Summer Painting Program in New York.
She currently lives and works in St Petersburg, Florida.
