Phong Bui interviews painter Katharina Grosse whose work is on view at Gagosian Gallery, New York, through March 11, 2017.
Grosse comments: "I think color is such an interesting analytical aspect of painting. It can sit anywhere. It can fit into anything. It can unify or break up the hierarchical orderliness of how we see the world. The coincidence of the painted image and the existing image field is very interesting. It is not synchronicity that makes them appear the way they do. They are basic forms. Otherwise you wouldn’t see them. You wouldn’t see them as painted images."
