In celebration of World Autism Day, Project Ability have taken over the Trongate 103 foyer walls with a truly unique and exciting array of large scale abstract paintings.
Tommy Mason is an artist who has been working with Project Ability for over 25 years. Mason’s style is one of a kind. His 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.
With a playful sense of humour, 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.
Berengere Chabanis from Project Ability said about Mason’s work “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.
