Michael Sibel: Figure Collection - Art Collector

Michael Sibel, 'Untitled' 2018, patina and oil paint on bronze, 85 x 50 x 30 cm. Courtesy of the artist and GALLERYSMITH, VIC.  Michael Sibel’s exhibition at Gallerysmith Project Space showcases his interest in the figurative. Neither male nor female, the figure is a guardian and vessel, a universal symbol of all that we have come from in a reduction to the simplest of forms. The figure is raw, even primal, and focuses on a dynamic link between an intrinsic, instinctive impulse and our controlled modern life. Evading literal representation, Sibel focuses on our flicker of recognition to the figure. These sculptures aim to pose more questions than answers through an undercurrent of otherness juxtaposed against the likeness we share with these pieces.
