dots and space, 1/10 Artist Proof (aka Black Holes)

Donated by Flora & Ian Tripp

Walter Redinger has been an active & influential artist / sculptor for more than 40 years, best known for his organic sculptures and fearless drawings.

Redinger, a prolific artist who has exhibited widely, is represented in various Canadian public collections.

Over the years, we visited several of Walter’s local exhibitions at private & public galleries in the London area, including St. Thomas and Woodstock.

We’ve also enjoyed the company of many other artists and friends during the Summer BBQs & Music Fests (with The Walter Band), generously hosted by Walter & his wife, Marion, at their home in the West Lorne countryside.

When his “Organic Works on Paper” show opened at the St. Thomas Public Art Gallery (April, 2004), we bought our very first Redinger artwork. The final edition of this Artist’s Proof print # 1, entitled “dots and space”, is also called “Black Holes”……..reflecting the “cosmic” theme of the series.

Flora and I fondly remember a lovely, Spring day after Redinger’s St.Thomas exhibit closed. We had a brief and very pleasant visit with Walter when he and his son, Jeff, hand-delivered “dots and space, 1/10 AP” to our home.
