Geoffrey Gersten

Informed by dual backgrounds in graphic design and woodworking, Boernie, TX-based Mitch McGee references Pop Art iconography, mid-century Americana, and visual tropes from his Wild West homeland to synthesize an art form and aesthetic all his own.

According to McGee, "Lichtenstein with a Red Bow was the first piece that started me down this rabbit hole. 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. The easy answer for me was wood. I grew up working with it and, combined with my graphic design background, it left me with a new medium and expression that I think really works." From there, McGee began to synthesize his own unique style and voice.
