Contemporary 'Surf' Artist: Scott Redford
I came across Australian artist Scott Redford. I really liked his large scale approach to sculpture/installation and the mixture of surf culture with commercial signage + the broken boards!
"Scott Redford is a leading Australian artist who has firmly placed his home town, Queensland's Gold Coast, on the contemporary art map. This major solo exhibition showcases his development of the fictitious character Reinhardt Dammn in dialogue with key works from the last decade. 'Scott Redford: Introducing Reinhardt Dammn' includes surfboard sculptures, videos and paintings, suites of fibreglass objects and canvases with shiny, highly coloured acrylic surfaces"
