Christopher Hutson was born in 1980 and raised in the Chicago area, where he went on to draw some of the coolest dinosaurs and spaceships at Whittier elementary school. He has always made art compulsively, and has been drawing as long as he can remember.
He graduated in May 2002 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in printmaking from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, and is currently enrolled in graduate art studies at Louisiana State University.


My art seeks to locate a mythopoetic realm, that threshold where shapeless stirrings welling up from dark subterranean labyrinths meet the defining light of discriminating awareness and are given form. All the shining manifestations of sense and memory are invested with internal spiritual resonance and significance, and meaning arcs like a spark between the anode and cathode of inner and outer reality.

Dreaming and its images are a primary source of my art. Often, one of my primary criteria for deciding at what point a work has concluded is the point at which I realize the full significance of the symbol. In fact, I often work with images from dreams or impulses that I could not explain at the beginning of my process, but that attract me with their power.
