SCULPTURES

The 'Life Burgers' examine art's relationships to materialism, consumerism and art as a status symbol. The meteorite works are made from actual extra-terrestrial meteorite metal and explore our relationship to the cosmos and the infinite vastness of both external and inner space. 

 
LIFE BURGERS 2015 - 2018

"When we say, 'I love hamburgers', we are not talking about love. We are talking about our appetite, our desire for hamburgers".

 

Thich Nhat Hanh in The Third Precept, 2009

"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 an 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

"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"
