urethane, pigment, and collected materials
28 x 19 3/4 x 1 inches

Internationally recognized artist Jedediah Caesar creates resin slices and sculptures that aggregate found materials, resulting in compositions that create abstract patterns and expose new social relationships. Gathering man-made and natural fragments – stones, packaging materials, carpet, and common scraps – Caesar casts them in a block of resin and then slices the bound debris into a work that evokes archeological strata. Here, one can see forms both recognizable and undecipherable, echoing a mysterious past and an immediate present. Jedediah Caesar lives in Los Angeles. Recent solo exhibitions include the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects; and deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Boston. Caesar was a participant in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and has been included in exhibitions at Saatchi Gallery, London; Orange County Museum of Art, Los Angeles; Human Resources, Los Angeles; Fundament Foundation, Netherlands; and Bloomberg SPACE gallery, London.
