Born in 1933 in Kent, England, Andrew Sibley migrated to outback Queensland with his family in 1948. After leaving the family property he spent a short time stationed in Papua New Guinea before returning to Brisbane in the late 1950’s.
In the early 1960’s Sibley was a part of the ‘Brisbane School’ with Jon Molvig, Roy Churcher and, further away on Bribie Island, Ian Fairweather. Sibley found early success winning prestigious prizes and was invited to exhibit at the Whitechapel Galley in London in 1962 and the Paris Biennale in 1963. In the mid 1960’s Sibley moved to Sydney and was a part of the Rudy Komon stable that included many of the most important Australian artists of the time and where he established life long connections. After moving to Melbourne in the late 1960’s Sibley was appointed a teaching position at RMIT (1968 – 1988) being influenced and inspired by many of his fellow lecturers who were also recognised for their work during this period such as Jan Senberg, Les Kosatz & George Baldessin as well as imparting his knowledge and particular understanding of making Art on generations of Melbourne based artists at that time.
Paintings is an exhibition of Oil & Enamel Paintings on board & also on linen from the 1960s ranging from 1964-1969. A small survey of an important decade when Sibley commenced his critically and commercially successful career that lasted over 50 years until his passing in 2015.
