"For a good 25 years, Katharina Grosse's work has been perceived as a challenging contribution to contemporary painting, but especially since her interferences with the spray gun [..]. A challenge not with the intention of destroying the medium but, on the contrary, to show the potential that the still young discipline of abstract painting holds."

Beat Wismer, the former general director of the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf, quoted from: exhibition cat. Katharina Grosse. Inside the Speaker, Foundation Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf 2014/2015).
