Mitchell Biggio statement

My practice is anchored in the manipulation of materials. With the use of repetition and contrast, I create minimalist works that explore the space between two or more points. During the creative process, it is likely for aspects of the work to be severed, modified, and repurposed. Through this constant manipulation of materials, a transient aspect within the art can be realized. This further encourages my experimentation throughout the practice, resulting in pieces with layered concepts.

Ramps and Planes explores transitional space with respect to time, location, and perception. These complex notions are simplified and abstracted so that each individual representation shifts based on its proximity and relationship to the viewer. This allows the work to evoke movement through sequential contours and the portrayal of linear and nonlinear timelines.
