Abstract:

A respected and internationally collected British artist, Alexander de Cadenet has intrigued the art world for over twenty-five years. This volume is the first comprehensive retrospective of de Cadenet’s years of art practice, traversing photography, painting, and sculpture. Cadenet is best known for his works, such as his infamous skull portraits, that are at once profound and humorous, as if directed by a mischievous jester spirit. This book brilliantly displays how his art combines inquiries into the big philosophical questions of life, death, and the enigma of art itself with an idiosyncratic, post-pop aesthetic. Written by leading art historian Edward Lucie-Smith, Alexander de Cadenet provides deep insight into the mysterious works of a fascinating contemporary artist.
