Victoria Reichelt

About the Artist

Victoria Reichelt (b. 1979) investigates objects and ideas that are threatened by redundancy, largely due to advances in digital technologies. A stunning realist painter, her medium enforces her message by affirming the place of painting in a world of digital saturation.

Reichelt won the 2013 Sulman Art Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and has been short-listed for a number of major art prizes including the John Leslie Art Prize, UQ Artists’ Self Portrait Prize, the Gold Award and the Fletcher Jones Art Prize. She has exhibited internationally at ArtBasel Hong Kong (2019), ART16 London (2016), Art Stage Singapore (2013) and the Korean International Art Fair (2011). Her work has been curated into major Australian exhibitions such as ‘We are Gold Coast: Works from the Gallery at HOTA Collection’, HOTA Gold Coast (2018); ‘Still: National Still life Award’, Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery (2017); Portia Geach Memorial Award, S.H.

Venue Snapshot

The Happy Cabin is a clothing boutique selling men's and women's apparel.

In the 1950s this was the premises of P Mee Lee, Quality Furniture, (phone J-2900, at Tram Stop 8). It later became Webb’s Auto Electrical, Generator and Starter Repairs, with the new style phone number of 4-5073, much easier to remember than today’s mobile numbers. The original residence behind the shopfront business is still visible from across the street.
