Influenced by Odd Nerdrum and Carravagio , Chris Sedgwick creates mystical realist oil paintings based off of photographs he's taken of himself and friends.
There is a sublime timeless quality to the work -- the wardrobe of the characters being particularly fascinating as it appears both futuristic and medieval. The same can be said for the stories that are occurring in the paintings.
A native of Florida, Sedgwick holds a BFA from Florida State University and currently lives in West Asheville.
You can view Sedgwick's work in person at Gallery Minerva in downtown Asheville.
