Simon Redington (born 1958) studied Fine Art at Goldsmith's College in London. Originally a painter of large expressionist oils, after ten years his focus of interest turned to the production of woodcuts and etchings influenced primarily by the work of the German expressionists, then later by the Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock masters. There are three posters in the Collection with woodcut prints by the artist advertising the TAG Theatre's production of Lewis Grassic Gibbon's 'A Scots Quair' (the trilogy made up of 'Sunset Song', 'Grey Granite' and Cloud Howe'). They were purchased by the University Collection in 1994 from an exhibition at the MacRobert Gallery.
