Mark Wojahn often turns his documentary images into what he calls "art journalism". 'Art J' is a mix of his photography with a textural and sculptural relief. He believes that combining textures with photography creates a new visual language. Basically, he enjoys getting his hands dirty in the studio. Sometimes it becomes a photo painting, other times it morphs into mixed media, sculpture or installation art. He has exhibited these "constructions" at the No Name Gallery, the Soap Factory, pARTS, Gallery 360, Franconia Sculpture Park, Soo Visual Arts, Rochester Art Center and many other art spaces. This work resides in many private collections.
