Elusive artist Mason Storm creates meticulously detailed prints from a fusion of conventional painting techniques and mediums, cultural iconography, and themes of modernity. His work turns around the traditional portrait: Storm will paint a figure from contemporary American culture, surrounded by relevant symbolism or objects. With their clever titles, Storm’s prints are suffused with knowing humour and irony - brilliantly satirical pieces which include cultural twists, adding in elements from TV, music, and advertising. Despite a lack of formal training, Storm’s work is remarkable in terms of its astonishing detail, as each image could be mistaken for a digitally edited photograph. In world in which photography and computer graphics reign supreme, Storm’s return to traditional, skilled technique to depict modern life is innovative, refreshing and deeply powerful.
