Wunderblock At The Nasher Sculpture Center

DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) – The Nasher Sculpture Center is submerging you in art in a new exhibition, Katharina Grosse: Wunderblock.

Brightly colored acrylic paints sprayed onto sculpted styrofoam and fiberglass shapes. Grosse explores how painting can “appear in space” – in the realm of sculpture and architecture – by giving color extreme and palpable form.

Upstairs, a large carved and painted structure fills most of the gallery and traverses from inside to outside onto the terrace. In the garden, visitors will also see two of her large “color-objects” — dramatic volumetric forms made of glass-fiber reinforced plastic—under the trees.

In the lower level gallery, Grosse created an immersive painted environment that visitors walk into and on. Become apart of the art as you walk through mounds of brightly painted dirt that cover the floor along with canvases and painted walls. The art work takes on a totally different look and feel from inside. It’s a way to experience four dimensional art.

Katharina Grosse: Wunderblock runs from June 1st through September 1.
