Photography by Ken Kicklighter
Judge Realty agents recently had the pleasure of visiting local artist Cedric Smith in his Savannah studio. Cedric is well known for his photography skills and many of you may recognize his name from photo credits in Savannah Magazine, Garden and Gun, and other high profile publications. However, Cedric is also internationally known for his painting skills. In Cedric’s thoughtfully curated studio, Judge agents were able to view completed works as well as works in progress. It was an enlightening morning learning more of what inspires Cedric and his artistic process.
A biography of Cedric posted on his Facebook page states:
“Cedric Smith is a self-taught artist and photographer who while eschewing the “so-called rules of art”, has created a personal genre of work. He draws on a wide range of influences and sources, both traditional and contemporary, and which include landscape art, pop art, brand advertising and photography to express his poignant observations of life in the rural south. A prolific artist, Smith works with a honed discipline on his compositions, seamlessly morphing photographic images into his richly textured pieces, applying and removing layers and lettering.”
