Acrylic on canvas, 250 × 170 cm
Many of Grosse’s paintings adapt the structure of a grid, a familiar form for plotting data in science and industry. In this grid, however, curves replace rigid lines. Drips of paint provide additional contours in a complicated mesh of colors. Neon tones of blue and yellow stand out forcefully, even where overpainted by red. The billowing optical effects of so many overlaid lines make it difficult to precisely distinguish layers except along borders of the composition, where streaks of paint end without crossing the edges of the canvas.
