'Just the Two of Us' urban sculpture26. Nov2013
In the last twenty years, Katharina Grosse, Berlin-based artist born in 1961 in Freiburg, Germany, "has pushed the limits of painting, expanding the traditional notion of the canvas in both form and content. Interested in the spatial dimension of paint, Grosse wields a spray gun rather than a paintbrush, creating abstract and illusionistic layers of color and texture on unconventional surfaces. Grosse’s painting has transformed objects and environments as familiar and unexpected as building facades, piles of earth, domestic spaces, and abstract forms." via Public Art Fund
The 'Just Two of Us', an exhibition curated by Andria Hickey, contains eighteen large, irregularly shaped sculptures placed in two separate clusters between the trees of the MetroTech Center plaza.
Public Art Fund "brings dynamic contemporary art to a broad audience in New York City by mounting ambitious free exhibitions of international scope and impact that offer the public powerful experiences with art and the urban environment."
