Christian Mitchell

Photography & Fine Art

Christian Mitchell continues to be a "one-man show", creating the makeup, wigs, photographs, sets and sewing his own costumes. Since his last show at THE HOLE GALLERY four years ago, he has created a body of work that continues to explore the theme of transformation and self-discovery. "I am a gay artist, but I don't consider my work to be political. I do enjoy playing with gender-bending themes and have a natural instinct to challenge stereotypically masculine/feminine roles and appearances".

About Mental Illusions

November 18-23, at Broome Street Gallery, 345 Broome Street, NYC

The images have a dreamlike quality inspired by fairy tales seen through a distorted lens. This collection includes self-portraits using multi-exposure images to capture various manifestations of himself in one image. He also features his niece in many of the photos. "She's an old soul and continues to inspire me with her creativity and free spirit", says Christian. These photographic images printed on metal have a dreamlike and mysterious quality. "I relate to most characters that I create, although some are created simply out of humor". Christian Mitchell resides in NYC.
