CEDRIC CHRISTIE

Cedric Christie’s Phoenix, a giant curvature comprising of a steel exoskeleton and snooker ball anatomies,
brazenly wraps itself around the space that it occupies the playfulness of Christie's materials and also
suggests the works' debasement of the sacrosanct ideology of Modernist sculpture. De-mythologised, the
piece lurches onto the horizontal; a movement from wall to floor that is a literal and figurative 'bringing down' of
monumental form.

In the work that is made of scaffold tubes  the  aim is  to remove  scale  from a material that is associated with
a particular scale  and development. To allow the form to become a support for colour  and the surface to
become space. Is the colour holding the shape, or the shape holding the colour.
