G44 Gallery is proud to present “Beyond the Surface” by Michelle McMahan.

Michelle McMahan grew up in two cultures—Brazil and the U.S. The mixture of the two creates in her a third culture. Her cross-cultural vision and sensitivity generates artistic expressions that are unique and yet universally appealing.

Michelle’s artistic interests emerged early in life. Her parents filled every home they had with great art and music. She studied dentistry in Brazil and then worked as a dentist in the U.S. But throughout her life, art and beauty have been the air she breathes.

The meticulous style of her work reflects a passion for minuscule elements of the natural world. Most people overlook these details, but Michelle brings them to life.

Her current work with reclaimed wood and metals developed first in Brazil. There she found amazing beauty in the abandoned wood that had been used in the 1930’s to build homes for coffee growers in the northern region of Paraná, a state in southern Brazil.

Restoring beauty and design to wood once left to rot is an expression of her ability to see beauty and value in every person.

Michelle’s work was first displayed in the gallery of the Architecture and Engineering Club of Londrina, Paraná in 2010. A private school in the same city also hosted a showing. To inspire young artists, she taught Brazilian grade-school children the joys of creating art in cast aluminum.

Now residing in the United States, she continues her work with reclaimed, exotic and domestic hardwoods, creating abstract assemblage pieces. In her first entry to a stateside exhibit, in 2014, she was awarded Best of Show for the piece “Paradox”, in The Abstract Show; Cottonwood Center for the Arts.

In Colorado Springs her work has been shown at the Deco Lounge at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center and at G44 Gallery.
