The main focus of this work is identity, and what it means to be human. Exploring aspects of personality, behavior, sociology, and the psyche; this work challenges preconceptions of beauty and humanity. This series of paintings probes below the superficial surface of people to expose the reality beneath. Utilizing mixed media, this work pulls together many different elements, materials and textures to portray this multi-faceted and complex subject matter, achieving a deeply human understanding.


Kelly Mudge has been working professionally in art since receiving her BFA in painting from Pratt Institute in 2001. Her work has been shown in galleries across the country, including several in her hometown of New York City (Tria Gallery, Leo Kesting, Allen Sheppard Gallery, Heist, The Drawing Center). Her work is included in several private collections. Kelly has relocated from Brooklyn, NY to Los Angeles, CA where she lives with her husband, daughter and English bulldog.​ In addition to painting, she does freelance illustration and works as an Art Director heading up the LA branch of a top NYC agency.
