Unfettered Sensibility: Corey Mason

I have a firm belief that if you are a creative person, your artistic sensibility needs multiple outlets, it fairly oozes out of you not only in the form of art, but maybe in the way you prepare a meal, decorate a home, write a letter or design a garden.  Landscape designer and artist Corey Mason of Clyde Oak extends the creativity he lavishes on his outdoor designs into his wonderfully unaffected mixed media abstract work.

Mason’s work has that kind of loose, scribbly feel that I personally struggle so hard to let into my own work.  Each piece is so perfectly imperfect.  From the smudges on the page to the backwards text so reminiscent of a child’s handwriting.  And did you spot the chicken?!  We are becoming acquainted with our landlords’ chickens.  I’m learning to delight in them so much!

Back to Mason’s artwork– truly in looking at these I see that unfettered, naive sensibility that I think so many artists are striving for but that perhaps has been educated out of us.  I don’t know whether Corey is a trained or self taught artist, but either way, he is drawing with the carefree spirit of a child, an aim even Picasso strove to reach.

    *unfettered, naive sensibility that I think so many artists are striving for but that perhaps has been educated out of us* ~ Totally! Love this messy abstract style.

      Me too! I love it and have had zero luck ever achieving it. Which is probably why I admire it so. ;-)

        I see a little of his style in my own work, albeit digitally created, and is perhaps why I’m so drawn to it.
