brush and ink on paper (sheet: 75.6 cm x 56.0 cm)

Andrew Sibley (b. 1933) is a painter and teacher who arrived in Australia from England in 1948, having studied at the Gravesend School of Art. Associated with Jon Molvig from 1958 to 1963, he moved to Melbourne in 1966 and held annual exhibitions there for more than thirty years. From 1966 to 1990 he was lecturer in Fine Arts at RMIT, and he has recently been Head of Painting in the Monash University Faculty of Art and Design. Sibley's work is represented in most major Australian galleries, and is the subject of a 1993 monograph by the Canberra-based art historian Sasha Grishin.
