Katharina Grosse: Painting with Color | ART21 "Exclusive"

Episode #218: Shown in her studio and at Johann König Gallery (both in Berlin), artist Katharina Grosse discusses her use of color when painting on three-dimensional and flat surfaces. "I like this anarchic potential of color," says Grosse, who paints very rapidly with an industrial spray gun. Grosse explains that despite an early interest in language and reading, she was attracted to painting because of its non-linear qualities. She elaborates further saying that painting "compresses time, shortening the process of thinking and acting." Among the works featured is an exhibition of the artist's paintings on paper at Johann König Gallery in Berlin.

Katharina Grosse is a painter who often employs electrifying sprayed acrylic colors to create large-scale sculptural environments and smaller wall works. By uniting a fluid perception of landscape with the ordered hierarchy of painting, Grosse treats both architecture and the natural world as an armature for expressive compositions of dreamy abandon, humorous juxtaposition, and futuristic flair. By building up layers of color with an expressive immediacy, she enables her work to become a material record of its own making and, perhaps, an inscription of her thoughts.
