Katharina Grosse



acrylic on canvas, 145 x 940 cm

Katharina Grosse, (b. 1961, Germany) currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Grosse studied in Münster and in Düsseldorf, becoming an art professor at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee in 2000. Grosse is a member of the Academy of Arts in Berlin as well as the winner of the Otto Ritschl Prize. Grosse’s painting aims to blur the lines between artistic fields, exploring methodology outside of a two-dimensional canvas that embraces a “total system of light and colour.”

"We have so much imagery in our lives that comes from homogeneous surfaces – from the screen, from photography, from our phones. I think that tactile images, or multilayered images such as painting, provide a different kind of knowledge."
