    Stanley Street Gallery
    presents Andrew Sullivan’s solo exhibition Back to Zero.

    Andrew Sullivan is a renowned Sydney based painter known for creating idiosyncratic works that hold meticulous detail and a wicked sense of humour. Creating complex still lives and portraits, perhaps for his own amusement or for the viewer - Sullivan’s tableaus are rousing narratives that mirthfully weave memory, melancholy and history.  Each piece possesses a unique personality, inviting viewers on a journey through time and prompting contemplation on deeper levels.

    Sullivan holds an extensive artistic career, a National Art School graduate and the 2014 winner of the Sulman Prize, he has also been a finalist in numerous prizes such as the Archibald, Blake Art Prize, and The Mosman Art Prize. His work is held in private collections nationally and internationally.

    The Stanley Street Gallery Poetry Program is held on the first Saturday, of every third month.  Please save the following dates:
