Draped in Colour

Katharina Grosse is a German artist, whose work employs a use of architecture, sculpture and painting.

She is known for her large-scale, site-related installations to create immersive visual experiences.

She has been using an industrial paint-sprayer to apply swaths of colour to a variety of surfaces since the late 1990s, and often uses bright, unmixed sprayed-on acrylic paints to create both large-scale sculptural elements and smaller wall works.
