In 2017 I have came across Katharina Grosse’s exhibition in London at South London Gallery called ‘This drove my mother up the wall’. I really like the way she integrates colours in different spaces. I think that through her work she creates a connection between the spaces/architecture and the way she intervene with colours. It is like the whole room/building is part of her work: ‘I can’t quit say that the painting can exist without the surface of the architecture, but the architecture is being transformed into something that wouldn’t exist without the painting’ ( Exhibition Guide – Katharina Grosse interviewed by Margot Heller, Director of South London Gallery, 23 September 2017).

Another aspect that I like about her works is that you do not actually know where the artwork begins and where it ends, it does not have a border. At the same time its interesting the way she creates her works in the space she exhibits in , so the space becomes part of her installation.

An important part of my paintings are the way I use the colours and how I use them, usually I like to relay on my intuition when starting a new work. For Katharina intuition plays an important part in her working process as well: ‘Intuition plays an important role in the sense that I constantly readjust my decision making according to where I am at that very moment in my project’ (Exhibition Guide – Katharina Grosse).

Katharina paints with an industrial spray gun, brushes and sometimes she paints with her hands. I like the way she play with colours and contrasts, I feel that the manner of painting is quit aggressive and it looks like the colours are going to take over the whole space.
