MARS Gallery – Jeremy Kibel

Art, Catalogue, Newsprint

Jeremy Kibel is an Australian abstraction artist who predominantly uses mixed media and collage in the creation of his artworks. With that textural element in mind we decided newsprint would be a fitting medium for the catalogue for Kibel’s exhibition ‘New Paintings’ at Melbourne’s MARS Gallery.

The news print production process reflects Kibel’s work in which paste-up techniques are often used, with the rough and imperfect nature of web-fed print reflecting this element of his work.

This new body of Kibel’s work was a result of a visit to Tasmania’s pharmaceutical opium poppy fields, giving rise to the visually arresting lilac colour reflecting the hue of the plant.
