Re: Michal Macku, Gellages.
Yes, I was fortunate to see the work at IFSAK in Istanbul two years ago. It is everything you say, and more. Awesome.

I just came from KL, Malaysia and I witnessed my first ever carbon print done by Michal Macku and also another type of alternative process i've never heard off, called Gellages! He had an exhibtion at the Wei-Ling gallery on Jalan Scott street. I've never heard of the artist before, his carbon work was very dark and intresting.
I spoke to a person who was running the gallery, and they told me he had run a workshop a few weeks before, a real shame I would have loved to have gone! Though she did say that there was a video recording of the workshop, in which they will contact me to send me a copy! :)
What really shone was his glass works, the whole 3 dimensional works were breathtaking! I'm unsure how he's done the glass pieces as it could be that he's made his images digitally and then used an engraving machine to etch it to the glass. Though his 3D looks like he's spaced and added more transparent layers.
Here are links to his website, you need a fast connection to see it.
Has anyone see this artists work?
