This piece was signed “Interior, Mason ‘45” on the mat.  At first glance, Interior is deceptively simple, yet suggests the young artist’s terror of closed places.  Closer inspection gives insight into what Ms. Mason really meant by the title she chose.  In this piece, the open dark drawer suggests a coffin.  Yet the cat sleeping peacefully on the rug below reflects the normalcy of most homes.  This was Ms. Mason’s dichotomy.  Outwardly, she appeared to be normal.  However, on the interior, from both mental and physical abuse of being locked in, she was far from normal.  Notice how the lamp on the bureau is off balance.
