Exhibition Catalogue Bettina Grossman, presented at Rencontres d'Arles (4 July - 28 August 2022).
An eccentric personality, totally dedicated to her art, Bettina resided in the Chelsea Hotel from 1972 to 2021, following the fire in her studio in which she lost all her archives. Living like a recluse in this community of artists, Bettina produced and accumulated in her tiny studio a considerable body of work that is fully in line with the great history of the artistic avant-gardes of the 20th century.
Her pieces were suspended in the studio, hung on the walls, placed on the floor: they invaded the space in a continuum leading to vertigo, the artistic gesture became a physical and visual experience.
On the borders of abstraction, Bettina manipulated, twisted, spreaded, stretched matter, light and shadow. Her serial practice reveals a hypnotic universe of great visual power.
