Artist Statement

Constraining my work to monochromatic renderings allows me to portray my subjects with a universality that transcends the limits of both color and shape. Not allowing color to determine form, nor form to define essence, I bring an existentialist quality to my work that many artists only achieve through abstraction. 

My subjects are contoured in a manner that is sometimes playful and always purposeful and my art is frequently achieved, technically, with single-line drawings. For me, the line is like Ariadne’s thread, leading us through the dark labyrinth of human existence. 

I play with my subjects, but respect their humanity. Perfection is an abstraction; imperfect existence is an art. I bend, but do not distort, I bruise, but do not break. Through careful choice of subject, color and technique, I am able to paint an exciting and insightful portrait of universal humanity that is race-less but not faceless. 

-Christopher Mudgett
