SLOANE BIBB: STORIED ELEMENTS
Customs House Museum / 200 S. 2nd St. January 18, 2018 - February 28, 2018
After receiving a BFA from Auburn University, Sloane Bibb spent twelve years in advertising and design field before concentrating on his art. Part painting, part assemblage, part cultural tableau, Sloane’s work is a pastiche of wood, metal, paper, canvas, even found objects, tar, and wax. Simple motifs, including nature and the female form, stand in measured contrast to the quirky compositions, pointed imagery and high-low mix of materials. The result is a wide-ranging and ambitious imagery that captures the rich, black wink of Sloane’s skewed world view.
Sloane is represented by galleries throughout the South.
