"Structure Meets Nature"

Sewickley, PA: January 09. Photographer, Mark Panza will exhibit his latest images at Élan Fine Art Gallery from January 9 through February 20, 2009. Reception Jan. 9 from 6-9 PM.

For Mark Panza the mystery of the human figure, the elements, flora, and modern architecture, are primal inspirations as he captures the world around him. Through the artful use of digital cameras and an Apple computer, he merges these elements into highly personalized imagery. As these separate components begin to converse, new relationships are revealed, and there is an alchemical reaction that Panza finds compelling.

Mark has owned and operated Panza Frame and Gallery in Millvale, PA for over two decades. Utilizing the vast framing materials at his disposal, Panza concocts novel ways of presenting his photos. He masterfully incorporates a panel system that adds a dynamic component to his compositions, leading the viewer’s eye slowly across the image’s surface. In addition, he employs reverse-angled degrees and levels, adding increased dimensionality to his work. These innovative methods become cues for the viewers interpretation.Panza exhibits throughout the Pittsburgh area and his work is in numerous collections nationwide.
