Sweet is a presentation of works on paper from the 1990’s and early 2000’s by Andrew Sibley in the second half of his career when his approach to making art shifted to a lighter emotive tone than in his early, more turbulent, years. This presentation of 8 works on paper show Sibley’s interest in exploring the inextricable highs and lows of the human condition in a more loving, compassionate, and vivacious way.

Sibley had an illustrious career as an artist for over six decades exhibiting at many of Australia’s most prestigious commercial galleries from 1961 until 2015. His work has been included in innumerable exhibitions including two significant surveys of his work at Monash University in 2003 and Melbourne University in 1976. Sibley was also a senior lecturer of painting at RMIT (1967-1987) and then Monash University (1990-1999).

Jacob Hoerner Galleries represents the Estate of Andrew Sibley and is committed to continuing to exhibit Sibley’s work and in turn research, and add original scholarship to, the existing records of his long and important career.
