About

Chris Mastin draws upon urban  life to explore the differences and similarities among botanicals, animals, and humans, and the inevitable questions and conflicts that arise. She sees stories everywhere: a twisted tree is a determined dowager; a flowering milkweed bush is an insular community vital to  foreigners.

Chris's interest in neuropsychology leads her to reconsider assumptions and play with “reality.” She may exalt something frequently ignored or dismissed, exaggerate or augment certain features, dissociate an object from its context, or choose titles  that point metaphorical associations.

Solo exhibitions include Peachtree Ramble and Hyper at Gravitee Fitness in Atlanta in 2020 and 2019, respectively. Group exhibitions consist of B+W at the Photographers Studio in 2019 and Rachel Reese Selects at the Atlanta Photography Group Gallery in 2018. Mastin’s images are in the Atlanta History Society collection as well as several private collections.
