I’ve been thinking what to do wit’ my future. I could be a mud doctor. Checkin’ out the eart’. Underneat’. – Days of Heaven (1978)

The ArtBridge Drawing Room is very proud to debut the work of artist Alex Doolan and his whimsical six-painting narrative series, Mud Doctors. Doolan’s large, loose, colorful canvases catapult the viewer into the thick of the high-stakes drama taking place inside his weird and extraordinarily sincere world, where mud, (yes, mud) is rushed to a hospital underneath the earth’s surface with a mystery ailment whose remedy only the mud doctors can supply.  

Taking its cues from his affection for storytelling, The ArtBridge Drawing Room will present Doolan’s Mud Doctors in two, three-painting, chapters. 
Chapter One will be on view through Thursday, February 9 and Chapter Two, from February 16th to March 15, 2012.
