Sibylle Baltzer

Adrian Carruthers Award

Sibylle Baltzer is a French painter living and working in Morocco. Sibylle’s paintings focus on a fluid repertoire of forms that point both inward, to the materiality of the process, and outward, being reminiscent of objects and visions in the world. This duality is as a constant in her work; a tension that brings into being a set of forms that either want to dissolve back into the very processes that enabled them in the first place, or alternately to ‘represent’ and reach outward - that is, to mark specificity and particularity in connection with the world, as experienced and seen.

Recent solo exhibitions include: Sibylle Baltzerr, Galerie Athanor, Marseille, France (2010); Bubble Gum, galerie Rê, Marrakech, Morocco (2010); Dust, galerie Rê, Marrakech, Morocco (2008); Delfina Studios, Fullcircle Art Consultancy, London (2007); Centro de Arte Moderno, Madrid, Spain (2004); Galerie Parvi, Paris, France (1994).

Adrian Carruthers Award

The Adrian Carruthers Award is a partnership between Acme and the Slade School of Fine Art, funded by the Adrian Carruthers Memorial Fund and Acme. Aiming to provide a bridge between art school and professional practice, the award includes a generous bursary, rent-free studio space and a mentoring programme. Recipients of Acme’s Early Career Awards Programme work from shared studios in order to encourage an environment of peer support and critical dialogue.
