Andrew Sullivan is a renowned portrait painter of prominent Australians and a past winner of the Sulman Prize. For his upcoming solo exhibition Sullivan has turned to actors of the silent film era, depicting a cast of characters from a lost, forgotten, or perhaps yet to be written story. Referencing film studio promotional images and influenced by Japanese kabuki, the gaze of each subject in the series is intense – a word never leaves the lips of these players, but their names, faces and demeanor are there to express their present state of being.
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 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.
