FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Brooke Mason: La Haute Main

Provocative new work by Australian photographer
at JNA in Santa Monica May 26- June 15.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, May 28th 7-10pm
Collector’s Reception: Friday, May 30th 7-10pm

LOS ANGELES, May 12, 2014 –The striking scenes featured in Brooke Mason’s inaugural US exhibition, La Haute Main, aim to challenge the long held stereotypes of femininity and power by addressing issues of gender roles, perceptions of strength and the identity of women. Influenced by the tenets of Greco-Roman mythology and the refined elegance of classic films, Mason’s artwork captures the essence of female beauty and the interdependence of the sexes in 13 luscious, large-scale, intimate scenes printed on high-definition gloss aluminum. Mason says of her work, “I enjoy delving into contrasts – yin and yang, femininity and masculinity, and the role reversals within.”

Art critic Peter Frank writes, “There's more than meets the eye in Brooke Mason's series, La Haute Main, as Mason advances a narrative of empowerment through embodiment.”

La Haute Main will be presented at the JNA Gallery in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica from May 26th to June 15th.

Renowned Art Critic Peter Frank writes about Mason's upcoming show La Haute Main - May 7th, 2014

"The enactments Brooke Mason stages and records are not psychological dramatizations or arcane religious pageants, much less, for all their trappings, carnal dumb shows. Rather, they are choreographies, a form of dance-for-the-camera that takes its visual cues as much from classic ballet as from dungeon fantasy and cosplay, and its narrative cues much more so. Her reliance on a readily recognizable set of tropes, risky as it is, gives Mason’s imagery a latter-day frisson; but that distraction gives way rapidly enough to invitation, leading into a world of cultural memory, even artistic heritage, where power-tripping is recognized as something as old as humankind itself. Such human dynamics have long favored the male, but Mason points insistently at the native strength of the female. She may express such strength in essentially male terms, terms concerned with conflict, victory, and servitude rather than female attributes such as fecundity and nurture; but she insists that women can beat men at their own game – to the men’s own enjoyment, and to all of our ultimate revelation."
