HOUSTON, Texas -- At first glance, it's not obvious that Katherine Mason's artwork is created with a unique medium.
德克萨斯州休斯顿——乍一看,凯瑟琳·梅森的艺术作品是用一种独特的媒介创作的,这一点并不明显。

The Houston artist collects lipstick donated by people affected by breast cancer to create her stunning artwork, part of a series called Painted with Lipstick.
这位休斯顿艺术家收集乳腺癌患者捐赠的口红来创作她令人惊叹的艺术品,这是名为 Painted with Lipstick 的系列的一部分。

"Most people will donate their lipstick to me in honor of friends of family members who have battled breast cancer and have gone through that terrible disease," said Mason. "A lot of people will also gather lipstick from friends and family members who unfortunately lost their loves to breast cancer."
梅森说:“大多数人会向我捐赠口红,以纪念与乳腺癌作斗争并经历过这种可怕疾病的家人的朋友。” “很多人还会从朋友和家人那里收集口红,他们不幸因乳腺癌失去了爱情。”

Mason paints imagery that she hopes will inspire women battling breast cancer, from the female form to floral designs. Her latest painting depicts a pair of boxing gloves, which symbolizes the fight that breast cancer patients face.
梅森描绘了她希望能激励女性与乳腺癌作斗争的形象,从女性形象到花卉设计。她最新的画作描绘了一双拳击手套,象征着乳腺癌患者面临的斗争。

Mason first began her Painted with Lipstick series after a close friend was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer a few years ago.
几年前,一位密友被诊断出患有 4 期乳腺癌后,梅森 (Mason) 首次开始了她的彩绘唇膏系列。

"She had mentioned to me that she was starting to put on lipstick before her chemo treatments as a way to regain power over her situation and make herself feel like a woman again, make herself feel beautiful and powerful," said Mason. "Her doctor has mentioned to her that it was actually having a great reaction with her treatment and her body was responding really well because she felt more positive and felt more beautiful in her skin. I thought it was interesting that something as small as a tube of lipstick could make a big difference in her hardest days."
梅森说:“她向我提到,她在化疗前开始涂口红,以恢复对现状的掌控力,让自己再次感觉自己像个女人,让自己感觉美丽和强大。” “她的医生向她提到,她的治疗实际上产生了很大的反应,她的身体反应非常好,因为她感觉更积极,皮肤更漂亮。我认为像管子一样小的东西很有趣口红可以在她最艰难的日子里产生很大的不同。”

Twenty percent of the portions of the artwork sold benefits The Rose clinic in Houston.
售出的艺术品部分的 20% 使休斯顿的玫瑰诊所受益。

"It has been the great privilege of my life to take these lipsticks that belonged to these amazing women and to utilize them and create my artwork from them in hopes to raise more money," said Mason.
“拥有这些属于这些了不起的女性的口红,并利用它们并用它们创作我的艺术品,希望能筹集到更多的钱,这是我一生的荣幸,”梅森说。
