Mason Kimber is a Sydney-based visual artist who works across painting, sculptural relief and installation. His practice engages with the social and material aspects of architecture, with a particular focus on their relationship to memory. By reworking images, imprints and cast fragments into new compositions, his work registers the histories that accumulate in the built fabric of cities and how they shape our understanding of place.
Kimber is currently a PhD candidate at UNSW Art & Design and holds a Master of Fine Art (painting) from the National Art School, Sydney. He has been a finalist the Sulman Prize, Churchie National Emerging Art Prize, Sunshine Coast Art Prize and NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (Emerging). He has been awarded studio residencies at the British School at Rome, Italy, Parramatta Artists Studios and Artspace, Sydney. His work is held in the collections of Artbank and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
