//WEEKLY ART REPORT
Katharina Grosse was born in 1961 in Freiburg/Breisgau, Germany. She has built up a great repertoire since the 1990’s consisting of large painted canvasses and bright acrylic colors sprayed onto both interior and exterior walls, ceilings and floors. It is a way of working related to Color Field Painting and Abstract Expressionism, between Impressionism and graffiti, performance, process and installation art. She investigates the limits of painting by using different concepts belonging to contemporary and traditional artistic expression, in which making and presenting paintings continues to occupy an important place.
