Cedric Christie was born in London in 1962, where he continues to live and work. His work explores a broad range of cultural and art historical references, often using humour and irony as subtle vehicles of communication.
Cedric incorporates and manipulates everyday objects such as snooker balls, scaffolding, and even cars to create sculptures that are meticulously and skillfully 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 indistinction.
Cedric Christie has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally and has curated a number of large-scale group exhibitions including Something I Don’t Do and The Things of Life
at Flowers Gallery. His work is held in the private collections of Anita Zabludowicz, Unilever and Derwent Valley Holdings among others.
