Bio:logy

Chris Mudhead Reynolds was born in Torrence Califoria in 1978. He started drawing at a young age and went on to study at the San Francisco Art Institute. His work has been exhibited internationally, is in the permanent collection at NY MOMA, Brazil, England, Lithuania, and once aboard a space shuttle flight.  He works in many genres including, performance, mail art, installation, visionary art, and painting. He was indoctrinated as a member of Fluxus in April 2011, and has shown along side such artists as Yoko Ono. His work travels through genres and mediums freely.  The basis of his work though ever evolving is based on the idea of time travel in which the artist connects with all periods of art.  The artists, alchemists, petroglyph creaters and so on of the past speak to us in the present moment by the lasting images and ideas they have left us.  We speak to the future in the same manner.  This is also a reflection of the ideas developed in a vast range of human development from the alphabet to string theory.  As contemporary artists we use a process of semiosis to travel a world in which time has collapsed in on itself and revealed the world of the spirit which is beyond time.
