The installations of Katharina Grosse are disorienting in scale, color, and material.  Her use of color is wild bordering on violent.  Brightly colored paint is sprayed over any surface the artist pleases, from the floor to walls and windows.  Huge heaps of painted dirt fill the gallery space transforming the space from an architectural to a geological one.  The dirt, paint, and various objects seem to intentionally undermine the white box that houses the installation.  Her installations raucously question the very space they inhabit by allowing visitors experience it in a transformative way.

Sarah Rosado, a self-taught illustrator and photographer, has recently implemented the medium of dirt scavenged from New York City’s parks to create quirky and playful images for her most recent project, Dirty Little Secrets. Oftentimes, she will accessorize the dirty images to give them a 3D effect and render them more realistic. She sets her dirty images against a stark white background, playing with the contrast of dirty/clean. A simple concept with a graceful execution.
