Mason Kimber’s new body of work stems from a fascination with the various styles of spatial illusion depicted in Pompeian fresco paintings during a recent studio residency in Rome. Drawing from architectural schemes and motifs that aimed to suggest an imaginary scene ‘oltre la vista’ (beyond the view), these works flicker between perspective and surface, interior and exterior space.

Using a mixture of fresco panels made from high-calcium lime plaster and pigments, works on canvas and wall-based installation, Kimber’s paintings conjure a facade-like entryway to a stage where fragments of half-remembered objects act as visual whispers of a déjà vu.
