Cedric Christie

30/11/2012

Having worked as a welder before becoming an artist, Cedric Christie brings a high level of craftsmanship and meticulous finish to his works.  Influenced by Robert Rauschenberg’s approach to materials Christie looks far beyond the cannon of conventional artistic materials, using everyday objects like steel rods, scaffolding, billiard balls, doormats, neon signs and even cars to make works which are embedded with political, social and cultural meaning and a healthy dash of humour.

Christie currently has two works on display at UpDown Gallery; “Shhh…Don’t tell Orange” (2012) and “Kiss” an humorous play on Rodin’s “The Kiss” that was recently on display locally at Turner Contemporary.  Christie’s work will also be featured in UpDown Gallery’s forthcoming exhibition”Let Me Introduce…”, which opens to the public on 5th January 2013.
