QUI / Poster / 14.07.2006
Young Australian artist Ben Quilty, represented by Jan Murphy Gallery, was after an alternate direction for the catalogue showcasing his exhibition at the 2006 Melbourne Art Fair.
A poster format was developed to best represent the centrepiece created for the exhibition. When folded down to a booklet size the reader is presented with two ways of opening the catalogue – either to an explanatory essay or to a selection of four of his artworks.
The four panels of artwork show a metamorphosis from skull to burger, with the front/back cover and essay panels displaying a full-scale detail of his distinctive style of painting.
