Life Burgers

"Paradoxically the hamburger, the ultimate urban junk food,

stuffed to the brim with different fillings, is here made into

both an emblematic critique of the society we now have,

its feckless financial systems and at the same time becomes

an emblem of a spiritual quest".

 

Edward Lucie-Smith, 2016

 

 

"De Cadenet's 'Life-Burgers...conjure a fattening materialism that works like a toxic cholesterol on the spiritual heart...Not only is materialism unhealthy, in its extreme it can dictate political policy and shape the structure of society".

Patrick Howe, author of 'The Awakened Artist', in Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazine.

METEORITE SCULPTURES

 

PRESS

 

"De Cadenet also makes sculptures out of meteorite because he believes the material may cause us to ponder the mystery and infinite vastness of the universe. For him, the fact that the meteorite may have travelled to earth from countless light years is a sacred contemplation. It connects him to a sense of awe info which he invites his viewers"

Patrick Howe, author of 'The Awakened Artist', in Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazine.

 

"The Apple with bites taken out of it symbolises the stage in human evolution when the human mind became self-referential and divorced from the natural order of life"

Patrick Howe, author of 'The Awakened Artist', in Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazine.

"In his skull portraits, de Cadenet is using modern art language and processes to communicate the vital spiritual teaching of death in a way that is relevant to our time"

Patrick Howe, author of 'The Awakened Artist', in Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazine.

"The skull portraits tackle both the idea of mortality and also the question of how we construe human identity"

Alexander de Cadenet, Unicorn Press, Edward Lucie-Smith, 2016

"De Cadenet’s Skull Portraits re-energise the long histories of the painted vanitas….There is a ghoulish humour in de Cadenet’s jest with the skull image: these will persist, of course long after we become crematorium dust".

Sarah Wilson, professor at The Courtauld Institute of Art, (2010)

 

"De Cadenet made art which to some extent parodied the celebrity world which he inhabited"

Harriet Muller, 'Art of England'
