Tim Olsen Gallery


Sciberras is an artist with energy and drive who constantly stalks the countryside snaring desirable material in a series of quick sketches or ‘notes’. He tends to favour the central west of New South Wales, particularly the old gold mining town of Hill End that has endured as a painter’s paradise since Donald Friend and Russell Drysdale ediscovered it in 1947. They revelled in the stark upturned diggings and tough vernacular qualities of the place.
