This work is about the ability of people, for some inexplicable reason, to deny science. I take this a little further and poke fun at this science denial by the tongue in cheek title. Of course we cannot see gravity, nor atoms and particles or cosmic rays, etc. Not seeing something does not preclude it from existing.

Getting to Know Mitchel

Painter Mitchel Hoffart creates abstract compositions in his spacious Minnesota basement studio. The linear nature of Mitchel’s work can be attributed to his educational training as a printmaker. However, he paints in layers, with each subsequent coat informing the next, therefore actively moving away from traditional printmaking techniques. “As I mature as an artist, my work is moving more towards painterly effects,” says the artist. When he’s not making art, Mitchel spends his time outdoors in nature, where he gathers much of his creative inspiration.
