Figures: Layered Wood Pop Art by Mitch McGee

Here’s some of the recent work by one of our favorite artists, Mitch McGee, previously featured here and here. He was also nice enough to write a great guest post for us a while back.

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.”
