Drawing on the disparate traditions of Abstract Expressionism and 1980s graffiti, Michael Gerngroß (born 1977) creates a hybrid style that foregrounds color as gesture. Recently, the artist has incorporated aluminum foil to extend the boundaries of the painting into space, producing works that seem to explode like fireworks.
