RandallScottProjects announces the opening of a new permanent exhibitions space in Washington DC with an exhibition of paintings on paper by New York based Mason Saltarrelli.

Saltarrelli’s works on paper are dynamic narratives that utilize religious, tribal and personal symbologies to relay abstracted contexts in life.

Saltarrelli’s process begins with the alteration of the paper ground. Often working outside, exposed to natural elements, the paper is stained and left to dry to leave a patina of undetermined age. The more broken down the better, as many works exhibit tears and holes and the artist’s footprints, as he steps among the worked pages. The paper often retains the indentations and colors of the surface the paper is laid upon. These natural elements play a part in the direction in which Saltarrelli will apply color and line. Intuition acts as a response to what is considered a partnership, a conversation with nature where Saltarrelli less acts as master, and more a guiding participant in process.
