Maureen Paley presents an exhibition of new works by Michael Krebber at Morena di Luna, Hove.
Krebber continually explores the exhaustion, withdrawal, engagement and premise of painting. His work is deeply embedded in its history and materials, yet characterised by both an affirmation and negation of the medium.
He has described how he uses painting as a filter, whereby it’s set of rules can be reprogrammed and rewritten.
