Mason Kimber (b 1985, Perth, Australia) is a Sydney-based visual artist whose work explores the connections between architecture and memory. His practice encompasses painting, sculptural reliefs, collage and installation. By reworking images and casts of architectural fragments into new compositions, Kimber investigates the way physical facades and surfaces become triggers – and also vessels – for feelings of embodiment and recollection.

Selected projects include: Tongue on tongue / nos salives dans ton oreille, Galerie Allen, Paris (2019), Afternoon, Sophie Gannon Gallery, Melbourne, (2019), Slanted Mansions, COMA, Sydney (2018), Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize, NAS Gallery, Sydney (2018), Arcades, Galerie pompom, Sydney (2017), and NEW16, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2016).

Kimber holds a Master of Fine Art (painting) from the National Art School, Sydney, and has been a finalist in numerous Australian art prizes, including 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 and is a current artist in residence at Shirlow Street Studios, Sydney.  His work is held in the collections of Artbank and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.

Kimber is a lecturer in Painting at the National Art School, Sydney and a tutor in Art Processes & Architecture at the University of Sydney, School of Architecture. He is currently a PhD candidate at UNSW Art & Design, Sydney.

Mason Kimber is represented by Kronenberg Mais Wright in Sydney and Sophie Gannon Gallery in Melbourne.
