Andrew Sullivan: The Birds of Earlwood - Art Collector

The Birds of Earlwood is a collection of paintings of birdlife in the Sydney suburb where the artist resides. Native birds share the canvas with elements symbolic of urban squeeze in one of the last sections of bushland in the inner west. Whilst pointing to the pressure of development that severely threatens bird species, the works also celebrate transcendence and adaptability, and the beauty of nature.

Andrew Sullivan is a Sydney based painter who has exhibited consistently in Sydney and Melbourne since the mid 1990s. He has been a multiple finalist in major national art prizes and in 2014 was the recipient of the Sir John Sulman Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Sullivan’s portrait of Dr Jeremy Walker was recently on view in the Salon des Refusés at S.H.Ervin Gallery, Sydney, and his portrait of Professor Paul Korner is currently at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra. Sullivan’s works are held in the collections of the National Portrait Gallery, Artbank, Ballarat Regional Art Gallery, New England Regional Art Gallery, Polo Ralph Lauren, Société General, National Art School Alumni Collection and the Michael Buxton Contemporary Art Collection.
