Sibbo creates stuff and paints things. It’s his own crude form of psychotherapy… pouring the days emotions onto a canvas and squishing them around with a brush.
Weathered timber and rusted steel is too often under-appreciated or completely overlooked. Kerry likes to upcycle scrap into precious artworks, by building his own canvases from rusty old milking sheds, and adorning them with portraits of the former inhabitants.
For commission works (usually cows, dogs, horses etc.) he often suggests to clients that they provide a bit of old corrugated iron or weather worn timber, salvaged from their own family property. This can be incorporated within the artwork to retain an actual piece of their heritage, generating a bond with the artwork that goes well beyond the image itself.
The fact that it is also helping to save the planet is just another added bonus.
