Katharina Grosse @ Gagosian Gallery

16 May 2018 - 27 July 2018

In Prototypes of Imagination, Katharina Grosse reveals the ways in which painting catalyzes the unfolding of multiple dimensions on a single surface.  At the centre of the exhibition is a single painting of oceanic scale on loose cloth. Working on huge expanses of flat cloth enables Grosse to execute very large-scale works in the studio in response to specific architectural conditions beyond it, in this case the Britannia Street gallery. This new approach creates a bridge between the studio canvases and the in situ paintings that she has been making over the last decade. In this abstract phantasmagoria, with its aqueous layers of vibrant, pulsating color, Grosse’s painterly gestures, and the inverted chromatic zones arising from her use of stencils of vaguely biomorphic form, assert entirely new spatial and temporal transformations.
