This extensive monograph on the artist’s recent work introduces readers to important in situ paintings and documents the artist’s 2017 exhibition at Gagosian, 555 West 24th Street, New York. Widely known for her site-responsive works, in which explosive color is sprayed directly onto architecture, interiors, and landscapes, Grosse embraces the events and incidents that arise as she works, opening up surfaces and spaces to the countless perceptual possibilities of the medium. Approaching painting as an experience in immersive subjectivity, she uses a spray gun, distancing the artistic act from the hand, and stylizing gesture as a propulsive mark.
The publication includes texts by Dan Cameron and Okwui Enwezor, a conversation between Grosse and Isabelle Graw, and an introduction by Louise Neri. It is presented in a slipcase designed by Grosse featuring a cutout that reveals the book’s cover.
