Exploring the continual exhaustion, withdrawal, engagement and renewal of painting, the work of Michael Krebber is a central reference in conversations about the mediumʼs continued relevance.
The large selection of paintings, drawings and sculptures featured in this two-volume publication showcases Krebber’s practice over the last three decades.
Stations in a recursive cycle of starts, fits and restarts, scattered in a variety of motifs and gestures, by turns emphatic, arresting or ironic together they trace the artistʼs approach to painting, its expressive language as well as its critical function.
