Thinking about the scale

It is interesting how much success of the artwork really depends on the scale chosen by the artist. If it is really small it makes public to come closer, pay attention to details and concentrate on work. However, large scale could influence someones eye in a greater way. I believe that it gives a chance to the person to compare their own body to the artwork.

I went to the South London Gallery to see Katharina Gross’s exhibition. She is a German artist exploring how abstract art works in a three-dimensional field.

“They’re about expanding small experience,” she says. “By making something small really large, you slow the information and time down, like slow motion.”- Katharina Gross.

“Grosse believes that incorporating painting with its immediate environment forms a total system of light and color that painting in two dimensions neglects.”
