John Mitchell paints from direct observation. Sessions repeat at a set time week after week for as long as it takes. His method centers around the changes that happen in a person’s appearance over the passage of time. A sitter assumes a new position and the shift is registered in the painting. A ring is lost and then painted out. His works are reflections of time spent looking at, painting and being with each person.

John Mitchell (b. 1971. Illinois) is a painter who lives and works in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA 1995) and Yale University (MFA 1999). His first two one-person exhibitions in NYC were at Alexandre De Folin Gallery in 1999 and RIVA Gallery in 2003. Since then he has been actively exhibiting in NYC and elsewhere. In 2015, Mitchell was awarded an Art Symposium Residency, Austevoll Kunstforening, Austevoll, Norway and in 2016 attended the Emerson Landing Residency in Wye Mills, Maryland.
