Installations

Mitchell creates sculptural installations composed of found objects, discarded clothing, shoes, household industrial materials and duct tape. Through tactile materials and color, these installations convey a sense of order and chaos. They are explorations of ideas about mythology, gender roles, masquerade and consumerism. Mitchell seeks to create a dialogue between the artifice of social expectations and the natural world.

Still Life Drawings and Paintings

Drawing and painting objects is a way in which Mitchell investigates what is important or interesting to her. Subject matter is influenced by her interest in discarded clothing and objects. Drawing and painting objects is a meditation on ideas of love, waste, beauty or loss.
