Mitchell’s upcoming exhibit at Gallery Route One, Mixing It Up, fuses the artist’s personal legacy and long history as a wood sculptor with the innovation of new themes. Included in this exhibition of new work is Mirage, a sculptural wall piece that plays upon the visual illusions which can inhabit a familiar shape. The work’s frame is designed such that the piece can be inverted, allowing a free-standing column sculpture containing three elements to be diversely rotated. The number three appears again in a sculpture titled Threescape, which is carved from a single piece of wood whose elements are joined, but which also engage the dynamism of distinct components, each going its own way.
