Jedediah Caesar
Untitled (Glyph Cube)
2008
Wood, polystyrene, resin
40.6 x 40.6 x 27.9 cm
Using the archetypical minimalist cube as a departure point for embellishment, Caesar’s Untitled (Glyph Cube) is made from discarded objects cast in a block of resin; the rectangular shape is cut from a larger mass to reveal the textures and colours of the embedded materials.
With the varied patterns replicating drawing, carving, or fossil formations, Caesar transforms a cube’s expected visual purity into a platform for information overload. The sculpture’s battered looking facades are reminiscent of both ancient hieroglyphs and street graffiti, posing suggestive coded meanings and narratives.
