A person’s reflection in water is a constantly changing self, a distorted image with many sides. Near the surface, the familiar blends into the unknown. Color and shape break down. Things that seem separate become entwined. " - Erika Craig  photo tumblr_mc1s4viS8y1ro74x3o4_500_zps15b6e958.jpg  photo tumblr_mc1s4viS8y1ro74x3o2_500_zpsdced6e36.jpg

'Cedric recycles the fence that is often neglected as it might seem unsuitable for anything. The sculptures are hanging from trees, integrating with nature, they arise and face everywhere. Folding, mending and evolving, the Cedric sculptures give a hand to the eternal fence, another life in art.'  photo Credit_Municipal_5_960-450_zps1048c924.jpg  photo tumblr_mctfygr4sO1ro74x3o2_500_zps9e894c5b.jpg  photo tumblr_mctfygr4sO1ro74x3o3_500_zps17e6dafb.jpg

Liking their vivid colour and strident competitiveness, she explores the ways in which they complete and clash, and complement one another. Each one has been designed to draw attention to itself, but together they make a glorious, confused landscape. The mixed responses of nostalgia, hunger, and maybe guilt, that can arise from these objects, are transformed on the canvas into the carnival aspect of consumer culture.  photo wickedlysmootherchocolatelowres093953_zpsf5fff780.jpg  photo DisplacedMintsII030348__030348_zps286bde5f.jpg  photo The_Twix_Mars_Malter_Divide_zpsc3983039.jpg

Whether it's moving to a new city, starting or ending a relationship, having a baby, or quitting a job, these moments of endings and beginnings are alternately terrifying and exhilarating. Ready or not, we jump, fall or are pushed, and our lives change." - Michelle Jader  photo tumblr_mfmvbbdvEH1ro74x3o3_1280_zps9fab8db0.jpg
