Esther Stocker is an Italian installation artist that creates minimal complexes with abstract ambiguities. Most of her work allows the viewers to interact and absorb the environmental spaces. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, and furthered her discipline at the Art Center in Pasadena, CA.
The installations of Katharina Grosse are disorienting in scale, color, and material. Her use of color is wild bordering on violent. Brightly colored paint is sprayed over any surface the artist pleases, from the floor to walls and windows. Huge heaps of painted dirt fill the gallery space transforming the space from an architectural to a geological one. The dirt, paint, and various objects seem to intentionally undermine the white box that houses the installation. Her installations raucously question the very space they inhabit by allowing visitors experience it in a transformative way.
