Rebecca Mason is a UK based artist using light to convey the darkness within human life, existence and emotion. Working with and exhibiting neon since early 2013, her creations are described as "an extraordinary mix of truth and beauty through which she is able to engage her audience with brutal observations about life, love, money and culture with her honest, and often humorous, interpretation of the modern world".
Rebecca uses neon and text to create a gritty and simultaneously delicate world. Drawing inspiration from the exciting, chaotic playground of London, her life experiences, mistakes and feelings and particularly from the events of the wider world and politics, her work focuses on day to day realities of human existence. The background text is (in most cases) written by Rebecca herself covering topics she feels strongly about, with some works being in progress for 3-4 years as she dips in and out of the content and ideas to reach the final text, order, placement and message.
Her work encompasses themes of inequality, fear, envy, misinformation, disinformation, imperfection, prejudice, blame, judgment, assumptions, truth, acceptance, power, control, chaos and wilful oblivion. Rather than a purely negative reflection on society, Rebecca sees her work as a representation of "truth" about our human behaviour (although would debate whether there really is a "truth" too), truths and realities which have to be faced in order to fix our problems and make the world a better place for everyone, not just the privileged few, often deploying humour and wit to convey her message. Rebecca also regularly donates artwork to charitable causes and auctions.
Rebecca has also recently established Sentient, a new physical and online gallery and design space, which she manages and curates.
Rebecca has exhibited at various UK venues and has collectors both in the UK and overseas.
