Biography and Information

Emily Margarit Mason (b.1992) creates sculptural sets using deconstructed photographic prints and found materials. Mason’s practice is quite physical, from collecting photographs and objects to their reconstruction in the studio. This play with materiality translates to a dimensional nature in her 2d photographs. Mason’s final photograph becomes a sort of dreamlike vision, not entirely representative of reality but not completely separate from it either. 

Emily Margarit Mason is one of Southwest Contemporary’s 12 New Mexico Artists to Know Now. She has exhibited her work nationally and has been published on numerous platforms, including Der Grief, Vast Art Magazine, PHROOM, Don’t Smile, and more. Mason holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art. She currently lives and works in Santa Fe, NM.

My work physically reimagines the perceived world from something seen to something felt, exploring how the multifaceted nature of experience might emotionally manifest.  Emily Margarit Mason
