Winston’s Lee Mascarenhas transforms the sounds and rhythms of music and dance into layered paintings with a balanced palette that is both bold and soft. Known for his masterfully composed encaustic bas-relief artworks, Winston’s new painting ventures continue his use of emotive mark making. A restless innovator and explorer of texture, color, and space; Winston’s ongoing experimentation continues to generate eloquently refined visual artworks. CAMIBAart is proud to be the first stateside exhibit of artworks from Winston Lee Mascarenhas’s thesis exhibit at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland.
My MUSIC, My HEARBEAT, My MARK is inspired by the Minimal Classical Period’s musical compositions and their way of building up a rhythm through the addition of notes in successive repetitions. Also of influence is the rhythm of life – carrying through from his previous career in anesthesiology, this rhythm is visually manifest as an expression of the ever present and constant human heartbeat. Admiring this exhibit, one gets lost in the layers of pounding beats bursting out of these measured paintings.
In His Own Words: “We all carry within our heads/brains invisible frames of reference that filter our experience and shape the way we see the world around us. Those frames are the product of many things – our cultural experience, our education, our assumptions, our relationships, and our innate biology. My frames are centered by the senses, and the paintings have become the physical manifestations or examinations of these senses; listening, sighting, in addition to my sense of the specific human condition weighing in on my mind at the time. Multi referenced and influenced, irrational at times, I have allowed the physicality of painting to manifest its gestures, its mark making, its scarring, its rhythms, its Beats!”
