The work of German artist Katharina Grosse presses against or explodes the confines of the painterly tradition. Engaging a range of surfaces, including aluminum, canvas, paper, and existing architectural elements, Grosse’s site-specific abstract paintings are executed in a manner that emphasizes color over brushwork, movement over stasis, and transience over permanence. A mere two blocks from the site of the first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction, Atoms Inside Balloons, is also a response to the gallery’s 30-foot-high, neo-gothic ceiling. Grosse’s exhibition poster features a detail from a painting made by the artist especially for the print.
