99 Loop is delighted to show Richard Mason’s latest body of work:

Fake Fake

Reality is an illusion of an illusion.

Richard Mason's paintings of fake pot plants and industrial grids talk to a world where technology has replaced nature. A world defined by the virtual - or fake. Our immersion in the reality of the virtual makes it difficult to distinguish that is real and what is not. As glitches are smoothed over and nature recreated we are left with nostalgia for a past that never was.
