Artist Spotlight: Mitch Weiss

Self Portrait by Mitch Weiss
Recently, we featured Mitch Weiss’ striking photograph of Lady Gaga that we had the opportunity to frame for this year’s ARTcetera auction. We are fortunate to work with Mitch to frame both his work for exhibits and varied works he has in his own collection.

One look at his portfolio and his work clearly transcends experience. Mitch Weiss’ visual language flows from inspiration by Renaissance craftsmen and artists who valued originality and attention to detail. Weiss’ technical virtuosity allows him to transform images into what he calls “viewing windows,” acting as a medium to portray the core essence of the subject. Weiss has evolved a mature vision usually reserved for decades of experience, all the while, maintaining the energy and daring of his youth. In a world where virtually every hand can hold a camera, Weiss’ touch can be felt in every image he produces. His curiosity toward the world and constant search for insightful narratives can be seen from a small goldfish to sprawling aerial landscapes.

Mitch’s upcoming show in January, to be held at the Gallery at the Piano Factory, is entitled “Content Dictates Form” and features an expansion of his works, beyond the stunning photographs he is known for, to include drawing and painting. Mitch is currently studying under Paul Goodnight whose expressive, vibrant paintings featuring African themes can be found in the Smithsonian as well as private collections of countless celebrities.

Involved from conception, to capture, to print, Weiss demands control over every aspect of the process to insure absolute integrity of his art. For Weiss, a master print-maker in his own right, the culmination of the process is in the print. In preparation for his January show, Mitch has entrusted A Street to meet his demanding vision. Mitch explains,

“I’ve never seen framing like A Street – the final piece is a sculpture in itself.”

From his perspective, the best part of working with A Street is that employees like South End Manager Theresa Mackin truly take the time to understand what he is looking for.

“I like to keep the framing simple, usually opting for a minimalistic look with a white lacquer frame and large mat. A Street understood my vision and helped me decide on a coal lacquer frame for a few pieces that paired well with the content.”

Mitch also draws inspiration from his colleagues whose work he has in his own home. From the dynamic paintings and drawings of Alexa Guariglia to SMFA graduate Bill Maass’ ink drawings to the iconic Albert Watson portrait of Steve Jobs that Mitch recently acquired, Mitch’s interests and muses offer limitless ideas for future art and photography.

Look for an upcoming post featuring photos from his January show with numerous works framed by A Street Frames.
