Mitch McGee graduated from Baylor University with a Fine Arts degree. For one collection, he creates images on thin birch pieces. He describes his art as a meeting between painting and sculpture. First he draws the design on the wood, cuts the pieces out, sands them to smoothen the surface, and then assembles the pieces together to form the final result. The texture of the birch wood adds character to his artwork. His artwork will be displayed at Elisa Contemporary Art. See images of his artwork and the details for the exhibition below.

    Storytelling with Petzvals: Alex Timmermans and the Art of Collodion

    Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.
