Figures: Layered Wood Pop Art by Mitch McGee
McGee builds his pieces by stacking illustrated layers of plywood, creating mixed-media artworks that sit somewhere between paintings and sculptures.
“Lichtenstein with a Red Bow was the first piece that started me down this rabbit hole. Roy Lichtenstein took comic strips and repositioned them as lithography. In an almost tongue-in-cheek fashion I wondered how I could take one of his pieces and recreate it in another medium. The easy answer for me was wood. I grew up working with it and, combined with my graphic design background, it left me with a new medium and expression that I think really works.”
