Sheila Giolitti

Physics proves the fundamental unity of all material existence.

Quantum physics suggest that human consciousness may affect the outcome of physical experiments, suggesting the essential unity of everything extends beyond the physical universe of matter and energy, and that the deepest reality is not some miniscule particle of matter, but a universal consciousness that pervades everything.

Sheila Giolitti’s preoccupation with the interconnectedness of all matter and consciousness as an ongoing process is present in the construction of her work as well as the concept. The works are composed in layers of mark making built up and stripped away. As a whole or in fragments, sometimes less defined than others, but always affecting what comes next. Giolitti’s involvement with the physical making of the surface is an integral part of the work, Each layer of clear resin allows for a cataloguing of time and the change that it brings within each piece. These different elements find themselves bound within determined space. These boundaries serve both to unite and separate. They are definite or subtle, encroaching and ignored, erased only to reappear, self-organizing themselves into larger more stable wholes.
