This month, MiXX projects & atelier presents Moment + Materiality, a new exhibit featuring artists Mitch McGee, Ellen Koment, and Sheila Giolitti. Working with distinct media and subject matter, McGee’s playful pop art relief paintings, Koment’s evocative, abstract encaustic pieces, and Giolitti’s process-oriented mixed media works strikingly capture moments in time and material. Playing on Roy Lichtenstein’s iconic comic book inspired paintings, Mitch McGee brings an added element of materiality to pop art by incorporating skillfully hand-cut layers of birch into his work. In Ellen Koment’s encaustic paintings, the viewer can experience the powerful physicality of wax, transformed from liquid to solid and frozen in time against the paper. Through her process of building, stripping away, and rebuilding layers of material, Sheila Giolitti’s intricate paintings create a physical record of her artistic process, making the temporal material.
