Alina Grasmann is a painter based in Munich.

“I am a painter and I mostly work in series and in large scale and oil on canvas. Each series is based on a specific location, that I try to examine more closely in my paintings. I have just finished the work on my last series „Sculpting in Time“, which was on view at Fridman Gallery in NYC until early January. The paintings show rooms of the urban utopia Arcosanti, which was designed by Frank Ilyod Wright student Paolo Soleri in the desert of Arizona. Ideally, my work is shifting somewhere between fact and fiction. The rooms shown in „Sculpting in Time“ become chambers of wonders, in the sense of baroque imaginariums. I try to fill a ruin, so to speak, with life again. But you will never find people in my paintings.”
