Exploding the confines of the canvas, Berlin artist Katharina Grosse (born 1961) makes installations with sprayed paintings that transform gallery and museum settings into colorful wraparound environments. No advocate of soothing effects in art, Grosse has built an oeuvre over the past two decades that is surveyed in this first retrospective volume.

The Flower Show, which can be opened from either the beginning or the end, documents two exhibitions by German artist Katharina Grosse. The elliptical structure of the book echoes Grosse's site-specific abstract installations in which colorful swathes of paint are applied in wide, gestural arcs to a variety of surfaces.

In Katharina Grosse's large-scale, temporary, site-specific wall paintings, the emotional effect of color is at stake. Applied with an airbrush atomizer, Grosse's paint fields of discordant colors battle, blend, drip, layer, and float freely over walls and ceilings from Germany to America to Australia.
