Cedric Christie’s work explores a broad range of cultural and art historical references, often using humour and irony as subtle vehicles of communication. He incorporates and manipulates everyday objects such as snooker balls, scaffolding, and even cars creating sculptures that are meticulously and skilfully made. They become both a critical appraisal of modernism as well as a playful exploration of form and meaning. Christie’s work betrays a fascination with the fluid line between art and object, manifesting the mercurial spirit inherent in embracing indistinct categories. Cedric has exhibited widely in UK and internationally and has curated a number of large scale group exhibitions including the group show Something I don’t do.
Cedric Christie was born in London in 1962, and lives and works in London. He is represented by Flowers Gallery.
