Structures in a Landscape by Sybil Curtis

Combining thoughtful consideration of composition and attention to detail, Sybil Curtis’ paintings present a survey of a moment in time, capturing the serenity and personality of industrial, agricultural and mining structures that are mostly made from simple geometric forms.

Through use of a process comprised of seeking out city-based and regional locations for subject matter, many of which have since changed drastically or no-longer exist, to then taking preliminary photographs to capture built environments which then inform the underlying structure of each painting. Addition and subtraction methods are then used to produce a coherent and visually intriguing artwork.

Presenting a body of work from a career spanning decades, each painting is intriguing and rich with detail, exploring the history of the artist’s practice along with the history of our changing industrial landscape.
