Alexander de Cadenet's art offers insights into human creativity and the spiritual dimension. His work is intended as a 'portal' to access a deeper dimension of existence - a connection to the creative energy that is responsible for the creation of all things.
Since 1996 he has been producing an ongoing collection of Skull Portrait photographic works. They offer insights into the themes of mortality, identity and the human desire for status and achievement.
The Life Burger sculptures explore themes of consumerism, materialism and what lies behind the desire for recognition and success. Within the context of a sacred, spiritual quest, the sculptures offer insights into the nature of human achievement, the desire for power and ultimately the search for meaning in life.
The Meteorite Sculptures are made from extraterrestrial meteorite metal and reference stories from the Old Testament and various religious and spiritual traditions. They explore the mystery of creativity and the origins of inspiration.
The Life-Line paintings present the painted line as metaphor and overview for a complete life-cycle for a creation - both the painting itself or of a life-form while the Photographic Encounters seek to capture and share moments of everyday connection to nature and an ever-present deeper dimension.
De Cadenet is currently the Arts Editor of Watkins Review: Mind Body Spirit Magazine and interviews artists and spiritual practitioners who are making creative projects which offers insights and access into the spiritual dimension. In 2017, he set up the Awakened Artists platform to showcase the artwork and creative projects by selected artists and spiritual practitioners.
