Profile

Cedric Christie was born in 1962 and lives and works in London. He has curated and exhibited extensively both in the UK and Internationally with recent shows including, Kiss your own Arse coz I’m not Sorry Anymore at 10000000mph Gallery, London; I did but Touch the Honey of Romance at Carter Presents, London; Please Shut the Gate at New Art Centre, Roche Court, Wiltshire; POZ at Gallerie Frederic Desimpel, Belgium and Repeat Performance at Anthony Grant, New York. His work has been featured in Time Out, Art Review, Wallpaper and Artfacts and he has even completed an installation for the interior of the Hackney church of St Peter’s.

Influenced by Robert Rauschenberg’s approach 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. Having worked as a welder before becoming an artist Christie brings a high level of craftsmanship and meticulous finish to his works.

Time and again Christie crosses the boundaries between conceptual art and pop, Dada collage and minimalist finish, high art and popular culture, sculpture and installation to produce work that is visually striking, gently alluring and deceptively complex.
