Tania Mason studied sculpture and drawing at the National Art School, East Sydney, graduating in 1997. She has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Sydney, regional New South Wales and Melbourne and was the recipient of the Outback Art Prize, Broken Hill Regional Gallery, in 2005, and the Blackfriars Acquisitive Art Prize, Albury Regional Gallery, in 2004. Using architecture, myths, history, haunted houses and barren trees as subject matter, Tania's hauntingly dreamlike monochromatic black drawings evoke powerful mythical narratives. During her residency, Tania aims to create a sense of memory, mood and 'history of place' through her drawings Hill End's buildings, houses, trees and cemeteries and to render a unique image of Hill End. (NSW Ministry for the Arts funded resident)
