Scott Redford is a leading Australian artist who has firmly placed his home town, Queensland’s Gold Coast, on the contemporary art map. His intelligent and passionate investigation of vernacular visual culture has enlivened Australian art. This major solo exhibition showcases his development of the fictitious character Reinhardt Dammn in dialogue with key works from the last decade.
