Sheila Giolitti

Sheila Giolitti is a Virginia based artist whose work embodies her belief that physics proves the fundamental unity of all material existence. Her artistic practice is deeply process-oriented, and her multi-media resin works are composed in layers that are in turns built up and deconstructed as she works toward her completed pieces. The surfaces of her work are built as she creates. Each layer of mark making is sealed with a layer of clear resin, allowing for a uniquely chronicled understanding of the time and individual layers that compose each piece.

"Each experience, be it organic or constructed, leaves its mark. As a whole or in fragments, sometimes less defined than others, but always affecting what comes next. In many instances this is carried on to the next work in the series, allowing for a continuing dialogue from one piece to the next, and directly tying the existence on the newer piece to the piece created before it, and the piece created before that.”
