Jaqueline Cedar

 

It’s unusual and refreshing to see ambitious, large-scale paintings today, especially from an artist just starting her career. Jaqueline Cedar’s new paintings manifest an admirable attempt to synthesize and reinvigorate figurative abstraction and to reconnect with themes and formal issues that have mostly been retired into art history books. - Robert Egert

The potential of figurative painting for intimacy and narrative emphasis, as well as thematic exploration is brought to bear in the paintings of Jaqueline Cedar.  Pairing a figurative style with self-generated imagery and formal composition appropriated from her photographic practice, Cedar’s paintings combine painterly gestures with articulated surfaces, oblique perspective shifts with flatness–the scenes wavering between depiction, memory, and fantasy. - João Ribas
