Houston artist Mitch McGee's artwork lives between painting and sculpture. In his current Birch series, he uses layers of wood, each illustrated, hand cut and stained to create dimensional pieces. On average, each takes 35-40 hours to complete.His influences include Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. According to Mitch, "I have always been fascinated with Pop Art and the ability of artists like Lichtenstein and Oldenburg to take everyday objects we are bombarded with and make them fascinating. Roy Lichtenstein took comic strips and repositioned them as lithography. In an almost tongue in cheek fashion, I wondered how I could take one of his pieces and recreate it in another medium." Mitch has exhibited his work throughout Texas since 2001 and in New York with Elisa Contemporary Art since 2012. His artwork was featured February 2013 issue of Dwell Magazine.
