Famous Artist of the Month: Sybil Andrews

Sybil Andrews biography

Sybil Andrews’ work has met with wide critical acclaim and ever increasing popularity. Her colour linocuts were featured extensively in the 2008 Fine Arts, Boston / Metropolitan, New York British Prints From the Machine Age - Rhythms of Modern Life 1914–1939 exhibition, and her work is held in major collections around the world.

Sybil Andrews’s interest in art began whilst working as an oxyacetylene airline welder in the First World War. During this time she took John Hassall’s* art correspondent course which introduced her to a number of different artistic media.

After the War she returned to her birthplace, Bury St. Edmunds, in Suffolk. Here she met Cyril Power who would influence her work, and with whom she would share a workshop for much of her early working life. They would also later collaborate on commissions from The London Passenger Transport Board, jointly signed with the pseudonym ‘Andrew Power’.

Wishing to pursue her interests in art Andrews enrolled at Heatherley’s School of Fine Art, London. But it was not until she became school secretary and attended Claude Flight’s linocut classes at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art that Andrews really found her m├ętier, and she quickly became another acolyte of Flight’s enthusiasm for the colour linocut.

Whilst Andrews’ works evidence this assimilation of Flight’s formal language, they often depart from a depiction of the kinds of subjects – the dynamism of the modern world, its concern with speed and with technological advances – that Flight encouraged. Instead, Andrews more often sought to capture the rhythms and living movements of the human figure. She explored various sporting activities to this end, including football, horseback riding and motorcycle racing, as also activities associated with men’s physical work.

During the Second World War Andrews worked in a shipyard where she met her husband, and soon after (1947) the couple emigrated to the remote logging town of Campbell River on Vancouver Island, Canada. Here she achieved a large following which lasted well into the 1950’s. In the ‘60’s she fell into obscurity, but was rediscovered in the 1970’s. She died in 1992 leaving a body of work totalling almost 80 linocuts.

Famous Artist Quotes:

Art is made to disturb. Science reassures. There is only one valuable thing in art: the thing you cannot explain.
Georges Braque

What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.
Eugene Delacroix

I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.
Frida Kahlo

There is no must in art because art is free.
Wassily Kandinsky

Click on the above hotlink to learn a little about 'street art'. Graffiti is not just defined as writing or drawing on a train car, wall or some other type of object...Graffiti has grown into an expression of counter-culture. Some very creative energy and skill is in this mostly urban brand of art. There is a lot more than meets the eye!
