Jacky Redgate is one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, acclaimed for her photographic and sculptural works that examine systems logic and perception. Redgate was born in London in 1955 and immigrated to Australia in 1967. Her career began in the context of late 1970s feminism, minimalism and conceptual art. Redgate has exhibited extensively throughout Australia and internationally for the past four decades. From the late 1980s Redgate has explored the interplay of systems of perception and representation, particularly in relation to photography and what occurs in the translation of the three-dimensional world into two-dimensional images. Redgate was the recipient of the Bowness Photography Prize, Monash Gallery of Art, in 2011 and the Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award in 2006. In 2013, Redgate was awarded a Doctorate of Creative Arts by the University of Wollongong. Jacky Redgate lives and works in Sydney.
