Mason Cosmo Pott
Mason Cosmo Pott (b. 1991) is an American visual artist known for his figurative paintings and minimalist sculptures that examine traumatic experiences related to physical and mental illness, medical treatment and the healthcare industry. His work draws from personal account and Neoclassical traditions to create images of surgical procedures, the aftermath of life-threatening experiences, and the balance between a patient's physical and mental health. The work often uses materials such as syringes, hospital gowns and other medical supplies to inform the subject matter. Pott earned his BFA from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2015. He has exhibited in galleries throughout the Midwest and his work is held in private collections in Chicago, New York, and Paris.
