Mickey Mason
7–21 December 2023

BSG Projects is delighted to present a new body of work from South Australian painter, Mickey Mason.

Filtered through his contemporary pop sensibilities, Mickey Mason’s textural paintings are soaked in familiar references to the camp theatricality of 1960’s film and television—here a doe-eyed ode to the brooding cowboy of the Spaghetti Western. Each set in idealised landscapes that feel like collages of an any-place-paradise, Mickey’s brightly coloured acrylics are at once an escapist melange of popular imagery, and a witty criticism of the contemporary tendency to artificially depict one’s ‘best life’.

Please join us for a drink to celebrate the opening of Cowboys on Friday 8 December (6–8PM).
