The Very Stupid Man


Jenny Reddin is a local artist who exhibits regularly in Australia and has successfully exhibited both in the USA and Hong Kong. 

Whilst Reddin’s work relies on the ambiguous nature of experimenting with materials, methods and process, she has perfected the chemistry involved in creating miraculous results that satisfy her search for ‘a beautiful surface’.

Reddin’s work achieves a delicate transience to suggest fragility of life, which is often reminiscent of aerial landscapes and of nature magnified to reveal structure and life force. Through this abstract nature, Reddin inspires viewers to draw their own interpretation and relationship with the work.

The Very Stupid Man is an exploration of our changing world, told by the tale of early humankind’s ignorance when compared to the wealth of knowledge held by the people of today. Yet with the poorness of resources and technology in earlier times came a pristine earth rich with nature’s diversity. Is the cost of all our cleverness at the expense of this earth?
