The work of German artist Katharina Grosse is utterly breathtaking. While her past work has revolved around colorfully spray painted surfaces and, most recently, her latest exhibition straddles between the art of containment and expansion, it is her series of painted soil that will really capture people's attention.

Whether used on its own or surrounding giant crystal-like structures, artist Katharina Grosse's painted soil looks like something that would be found on an alien planet. Of course, there is a deeper meaning to the installations than that. As written on Beautiful Decay, "Her installations raucously question the very space they inhabit by allowing visitors experience it in a transformative way." Artist Katharina Grosse pushes the boundaries of space with her installations.
