Katharina Grosse: Spray-painted Orbs


Berlin-based artist Katharina Grosse has transformed the enormous stark grey gallery space of The Netherlands’ De Pont Museum of Contemporary Art in Tilburg with brilliant coloured large-scale artworks.

The exhibition, titled Two Younger Women Come In And Pull Out A Table, is a series of immersive installations featuring a central display of giant multicoloured orbs. Suspended from the ceiling, the white and clear balls are made of latex and coated with acrylic paint using Grosse’s characteristic spray-gun technique, by which she applies layer upon layer of vivid, transparent streaks of colour.

Grosse also shows 15 large-scale paintings from a decade of studio work between 2002 and 2012. Read more about Grosse in the Stylus report Spray-paint Effects.

Two Younger Women Come In And Pull Out A Table is showing until 9 June 2013.
