Mikolay’s paintings are a long-term exploration of color fields, geometric shapes, patterns, and optics in a given composition. When she paints on a larger scale, she paints directly onto the wall and considers the relationship between composition, architecture, and the viewer passing through it. In terms of her installations, Mikolay responds to the uniqueness of each site. She explores the relationship between material, concept site, and the viewer.
Her work is represented at Concept Art Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA. Mikolay has exhibited her work all over the city of Pittsburgh, including Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Future Tenant Gallery, Pittsburgh Biennial, the SPACE Gallery, and the Jask Gallery.
