Thusly, Mitchell

My artwork is inspired by what it means to be ‘Mitchell’. The piece originates at a small local point, which demonstrates how we go out into the world from the same place. As the bow of the arc increases, our unique passions and paths in life are embodied, yet, the softening of the arc conveys no matter our differences, we all come home to the same point. The 3 hanging globes represent the other 3 members of the family who shine a wonderful light into our respective lives, creating a unique relationship with the piece for each family member, as the three globes represent different people to each of us. Ultimately, my piece was created with the intention of expressing the beautiful nature of family. A concept, whilst common to all is infinite in its variations.
