Katharina Grosse

Katharina Grosse (*1961 in Freiburg, living and working in Berlin) studied at the art academies of Münster and Dusseldorf. From 2000 to 2011, she was a professor at the Berlin-Weissensee School of Art and, since 2011, is a professor of painting at the Dusseldorf Art Academy. The ephemeral quality of her painting is characteristic, its exits the image carrier and steps out of the surface in order to intervene in space. Floor and ceiling turn into a painting surface, debris and stones, pieces of furniture, materials, objects and items are included. The painting breaks its way alongside exterior facades and interior spaces, it passes canvasses and styrofoam objects and transforms entire rooms into complex color spheres. With her consistent method the artist, in the last 15 years, contributed to the extension of the concept of painting and became a central figure in the recent history of painting. Katharina Grosse has received numerous prizes and awards, such as the Otto Ritschl Prize (2015); Oskar Schlemmer Prize (2014); the Great State Prize for Fine Arts of Baden-Wuerttemberg (2013). Her works were shown in solo exhibitions, including GARAGE-Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow (2015); Staatsgalerie Stuttgart (2014); Kunsthaus Graz (2014); Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2014); Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas (2013).
