Kiata Mason’s body of work revolves around collections of objects in the domestic home environment, depicting the compositions created for still-life paintings and highlighting the haphazard nature of a working space. Based on objects from her own family home, the works speak strongly of the emotional pull that can be experienced in a room full of the remnants of a long, shared life. Dispersed, the objects could be seen as bric-a-brac, but united as collections they tell intriguing stories of the inhabitants.
