Katharina Grosse Images of the Installation

Katharina Grosse employs spray guns, air compressors, and paint to make monumental site-specific paintings directly on gallery walls, ceiling, and floor. Intense colors form lyrical stretches of drifting and colliding expressionist clouds, both dematerializing and restructuring architectural space.

Katharina Grosse’s recent solo exhibitions include: Galerie Sfeir-Semler in Hamburg; Sarah Cottier Gallery in Sydney; the Artsonje Museum in Kyongju, South Korea; and Hammer Projects, Los Angeles. In 1999 she was the artist in residence at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. She lives and works in Düsseldorf and Berlin.
