1972-1976 is a series of pivotal works on multi-layered perspex made in the 1970’s by Andrew Sibley. This important exhibition once again puts a focus on the contribution that this avant-garde artist has made for over five decades. The period being explored in this exhibition highlights this pioneering artist’s exploration of ideas and use of new materials at a time when formal notions of how art was made were in flux. Sibley shows through his carefully constructed and highly sophisticated works on perspex an ability to be experimental and yet retain aesthetic excellence. The first of a series of exhibitions in the coming years that look back to look forward on how Australian art has developed, this exhibition reaffirms and reasserts Sibley’s preeminence as a modern Australian master.
