Object Detail

Richard Reddaway is a Wellington sculptor and Senior Lecturer at Massey University’s School of Art. He has a long-standing interest in representing the human figure, and does so with a gentle sense of wit. The characters in this work follow on from his exhibition ‘Family’ at Pataka in 2016, where each sculpture, handmade, wonky and lovingly covered in objects of domestic living, emits a unique personality both metaphorically and literally through sound emitted from speakers embedded in each figure/structure.

These figures too, include a sound and light component, but trapped in a still flat image it can only be inferred. A life sized version of this work was shown at Sawtooth ARI Gallery, Tasmania in a group show with Catherine Bagnall (a fellow Wellington artist and Massey Lecturer) and Australian artist Terry Urbahn.

Reddaway studied at the Canterbury School of Art and the Kunstakademie, Düsseldorf, Germany and received a Master in Fine Art from RMIT in Melbourne Australia. From the-mid 1980s he has exhibited consistently in New Zealand and internationally, including the Netherlands, Australia, Spain and Mexico. He has undertaken residencies in Ecuador and Mexico, where he was a visiting scholar.
