Italian term or phrase: potersi misurare con esse
I cannot figure this one out. The previous sentence has described how the artist fills up her vast backgrounds with colour in a typical expressionist style, and then....

"Gestire grandi dimensioni e potersi misurare con esse dà la possibilità al pittore di risolvere lo spazio attraverso ampi gesti, tanto penetranti quanto carichi di intensità."

rising to the challenge they represent
Explanation:
Literally it would be measuring oneself against these vast spaces but I think it also may be translated this way...the vast blank space represents a challenge to the artist and as misurarsi can also translate as to challenge oneself this could be a suggestion
