JADE RUDE "NICE TO SEE YOU" 2018
Jade Rude is a Toronto-based multi-disciplinary artist educated in Norway and Canada.
Alternating between playful and austere, Jade uses perception-shifting tactics to explore the relationship between reality and representation.
Text is integral part of Jade Rude's practice. Her sculpture "Nice To See You" blurs the responsibilities of mirror, signage and slogan.
The functional element (the mirror) becomes decorative, a salutation becomes signage and the physicality and message of the mirror upstages the viewers' reflection.
Besides the fact that the sculpture is sexy and chic, any opportunity to feel self-critical is bumped by the self-affirming slogan. And how clever is it to encounter a mirror, that expresses its happiness by seeing the viewer.
Jade Rude's beloved text-based pieces enliven any space and bring a smile to any spectator.
Caviar20 has been a long admirer and champion of Jade Rude's precise aesthetic, minimal palette and her re-visioning of daily objects and familiar motifs.
We are pleased to offer this new edition of the "Nice To See You" sculpture in silver.

Our inventory is divided between New York and Toronto.
- Where do you ship to?
We can ship anywhere. Typically when we ship within North America we prefer to use FedEx Ground. To Europe, Asia and beyond we generally use DHL. Occasionally we use CanadaPost, but will notify the client if this is the best option.
- How much does it cost to ship?
For shipments within North America, we typically charge a flat rate fee. Many items on our site will list the rate. For shipping outside of North America, we can easily provide a quote and will look for the most efficient and economical option.
Most of the items on our site can be easily shipped internationally.
Occasionally we will recommend that an artwork be removed from its frame for shipping. Larger framed works are typically framed with plexiglass. We export over 80% of what we sell, so we are comfortable shipping anywhere.
- Are there additional taxes or fees?
When a work is valued above $2,500 usd there is a possibility of tax of 0.35%, but this is applied sporadically. There can similarly be an additional fee for customs brokerage and this can range from $20 - $65. US Taxes, duties and customs brokerage are not included in our flat rate shipping. However most of our shipments to the US enter without any additional fees.
