Reddaway’s work follows up his show Some Assembly Required from 3 years ago. Cast in resin over cardboard boxes, then rather lushly painted, these Tales from Elsewhere are more mask-like than before. Small, Smaller, Smallest is delightfully Day of the Dead; whilst Icy is really just wild. Equipment 1 and Equipment 2 bring a certain levity to proceedings. As in much of this work, the potential for sound is offered (via speakers and cables) but not realized. For these are masks presented on the wall, or arm-like limbs and mitts placed on the floor.

This gesture towards the functional is taken a step further in a suite of small photographs hung in found frames in the gallery office. Each image, with the name of the work below, shows the sculpture being worn. Variously posed, the figures in these photographs experience Richard’s work in a different way again. For not the first time in his career, Reddaway adds resonance and substance to his sculpture with his considered use of photography.
