Cedric Christie exhibition featured on TikiChris blog
"I've known Cedric for a few years now. He's a super cool and utterly affable sort of bloke with the social skills and network of friends to throw blazingly fun parties.
But I'd never actually seen any of his artwork in person before. So, I went to his opening with a bit of apprehension. It's no fun to be in the position of genuinely liking somebody for who they are but finding that what do to actually suck - especially when its something arty. Big phew and plenty of wows later, I'm happy to report I really enjoyed checking out this man's show and reckon if you're interested in modern sculpture you'd be wise to take a gander at his stuff as well.
The exhibition, titled When Painting Collapses, You Have Beautiful Sculptures, showcases two new bodies of work by Christie: his sculptural response to a gallery along with recent work developed during a residency in Kleve, Germany. The pieces on exhibit explore the artist's 'personal endeavour to transform one medium into another'. They exude confident in their simplicity and yield a sense of serenity (or did at least for this viewer anyway)."
When Painting Collapses, You Have Beautiful Sculptures runs until 29 June at Flowers, 82 Kingsland Road, E2 8DP
