There is a competitiveness and drive that helps us to take that extra step when our body and mind can take no more. The same applies in art. When my hand hurts, my head is tired from countless hours at the easel, when I'm in doubt about the work, I know that nothing would be won by retreating. I always have to keep pushing forward at all costs, no matter what. And this olympian mindset, is what has carried me this far and has gotten me to where I am today.
His art lives and dies on the canvas and inspires him to triumph over his doubts and fears to be victorious. Mudgett draws maximum inspiration from life itself. The people with whom he corresponds daily, the ideas and beliefs that are closest to his soul, love in his heart and the doubts and fears he has of himself.
In the current “on-demand” zeitgeist where everything is based on the concept of instant gratification, even Art has developed a somewhat duplicitous persona. But there are still a handful of dedicated artists who believe in perfecting one’s craft, and upholding the integrity of the creative process.
With an unrelenting attention to detail, evoked with emotion and humanity, artist Christopher Mudgett brings his experiences to life. By giving freely of himself to his art, his ideas are translated into a moving depiction of feeling, which lends itself to a deeper and more meaningful visual story.
