Acrylic on canvas and wood, 349 × 248 × 80 cm
In some of her recent work, Grosse attached elemental materials like tree branches to canvases. Found pieces of tree trunks and branches were applied in an upside-down position to gessoed and partly slashed canvases that reveal these scars. In this work Grosse sprayed layers of thin paint in bold and garish colors over and beyond both canvas and elemental materials. Enigmatic in its appearance, the work belies binary notions of nature and culture (painting) as mutually exclusive. Here both coexist in somewhat dilapidated conditions.
