Jenny Reddin Artist in Residence Maestro
Jenny Reddin Artist in Residence Maestro

Jenny Reddin

Maestro is honoured to host Jenny Reddin as the inaugural Artist in Residence, with her work featured throughout Holiday Inn & Suites Geelong, and our restaurant.  Jenny is a distinguished and award-winning Australian painter and sculptor renowned for her abstract art. Her approach breaks with tradition, embracing chance, gravity, and fluid dynamics as primary forces in her creative process. Jennys’ remarkable artwork, “MAESTRO”, in honour of Chef Adrian Richardson, is a welded metal sculpture that stands boldly at the entrance of the restaurant. The robust red metal sculpture is a testament to Jenny’s creative genius and her ability to capture the essence of extraordinary achievers. The inner figure, painted black, represents the inner strength and determination, while the outer layer in bright red signifies the passion and energy that drives the passionate restaurant team. Two of Jenny’s outstanding paintings, “Nebular” and “The Flock,” grace the walls of Maestro, each offering a unique perspective on art and nature. “Nebula” invites viewers to experience a sense of weightlessness and drifting through a cloud, achieved using a viscous mix of paint and medium. In contrast, “The Flock” pays homage to the majestic and powerful eagles that soar above us daily, reminding us of the beauty and grandeur of the natural world 
We are pleased to share that Jenny’s displayed artworks are for sale and available for you to take home, via West End Art Space.
