Oscar ReddingArtist Kim Nelson’s portrait of actor, producer and screenwriter Oscar Redding has been selected as a finalist in the City of Perth ‘Black Swan; National Portrait Awards to be staged in Perth in September. As some may remember Oscar was featured in these News pages last year with the release of his latest film ‘Van Dieman’s Land’.

Oscar Redding (who grew up in Wee Jasper in the Yass Valley Shire), was approached by Nelson after the artist saw a preview of the film and was inspired to do a painting in relation to the film.
