Alina Grasmann: The Grand Buffet

The subject of Grasmann’s most recent series, The Grand Buffet, is Haus Schminke, a landmark of modernist architecture built by Hans Scharoun in the Saxon countryside in the early 1930s. Its round forms, porthole-like window treatments, colorful ceilings, and direct connections through glass walls to nature – reminiscent of Arcosanti – were designed as a fun experience, especially for the four children of the Schminke family. Grasmann’s paintings recreate this intent, tracing the feeling she had when visiting the place, and awakening the viewer’s own childhood memories.


Immerse yourself in the joys and wonders of Grasmann's paintings as showcased in her second catalog with the gallery.
