Katherina Grosse quotes: "For me, painting isn’t restricted to a canvas or a wall.".Grosse’s paints large and colorful installations which she pays tribute to abstract painting.
I found her fascinating because she feels that painting is about expanding small experiences. She says. “By making something small really large, you slow the information and time down, like slow motion.” This quote made me think about my work. I am expressing life experiences and the emotions that enter into that world during those circumstances. I am slowing time down and trying to project an event in my life in a series of work. In essence I am slowing down time in order to share an experience and the feelings that go along with that experience.
I also like how she feels that the space around the painting can help to generate the image and that a painting can exist in any space. This has made me think more and more about installation art and how I can extend my paintings outside the canvas.
