Sloane Bibb is a native Alabamian and currently resides in his hometown of Decatur. Sloane, once a creative director, has now stepped off the cliff and painting full time. Sloane started his college education at Auburn University in industrial design, but switched to fine arts to pursue a degree in graphic design.
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.
