Paintings by Lynda Mason: 

As a study of life’s challenges, my original pop art depicts feelings of escapism, individuality, rebellion, and isolation. Inspired by childhood dreams and my love for animals, my art represents individualism and following life’s passions.

Horses and other animals are my main subjects, and my passion for them is evident in their intimate depiction in my art. This passion began during childhood, in which my first memories involve drawing horses, riding horses, and collecting model horses.

My education in forensic science and zoology has contributed to the use of animal themes juxtaposed with forensic science elements. Animals are used among pop culture references to humorously tell an important message about individuality and following childhood dreams.

My introspective art also portrays the afflictions of society, including materialism, narcissism, and conformity. It is intended to be intellectually and aesthetically stimulating, while humorously portraying the challenges of life.
