‘And So We Fall’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary light artist Rebecca Mason. Printed onto 308gsm Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Paper, the piece is from a limited edition of 100 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Rebecca Mason works with neon light to create a unique and striking aesthetic. Her work explores the darker side of human nature through the medium of light, for a conceptually powerful juxtaposition. In using neon, Mason allows the seediness of the city to seep into the delicacy of her work, which is always centred around typography, offering a slight but profound comment on human existence and emotion. ‘And So We Fall’ depicts the single word ‘lunacy’, each letter bent from soft white strips of neon light.
The eye-catching word is set against a black background, beside an image of the moon, and Mason has printed a poetic paragraph at the bottom of the print that speaks to the deeply human and personal, creating emotive images through the language. The interplay of light and dark is mesmerising and profoundly beautiful and Mason’s message is life-affirming: a brilliant moment of illumination in an all-too often dark world.
