With her work, Katharina Grosse has occupied one of the most important international positions in painting since the early 1990s. Her work and thinking is characterized by constant renewal and variable perspective; it aims at a systematic questioning and expansion of the concept of the picture. Initially with brushes and broad brushes, and since 1998 mainly with a spray gun, she has been working on making painting recognizable as a relational, spatially related, performatively founded, ephemeral phenomenon. The characteristics of analytical painting – the painterly questioning of colorant, carrier and application – are anything but alien to her work, but at best form a transit station on the way to a colorfulness liberated in itself, which only becomes complete through the viewer.
