Kati Heck

°1979, Düsseldorf (DE) – lives and works in Antwerp (BE).

Kati Heck is to be considered an heiress to German Expressionism. One is reminded of the bars, dancers and actors of Otto Dix and George Grosz, at the same time as the Old Masters. Heck synthesizes and fuses styles. She is as much an abstractionist as a realist. Parts of her paintings are meticulously rendered on her stitched canvases, with a unique virtuosity and acute attention to detail, while others look streaked, smeared and sculpted as in 'O Romain'. You can find reflections of Robert Rauschenberg, the way she combines non-traditional materials and everyday objects in innovative combinations. She challenges the medium of paint on a completely new level, as a gesture toward unabashed self-assertion and its radical effects. As the artist states, "I always opt to use more paint, it helps me move away from realism and towards total freedom."

Kati Heck has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at CAC Malaga; Museum Het Domein, Sittard and Mary Boone Gallery, New York. She currently has a show at Corbett vs. Dempsey, Chicago; and has a big solo exhibition planned at M HKA, Antwerp for early 2016.

Her work has been shown in several group exhibitions at venues such as Saatchi Gallery, London; National Art Museum of China, Beijing; Middelheim Museum, Antwerp; The Agency, London and BOZAR, Brussels.
