Tim Van Laere Gallery

Tim Van Laere Gallery is pleased to present its fifth solo exhibition by Kati Heck.

Kati Heck’s masterful virtuosity is unmistakable. She portrays her figures in a photo-realistic manner with great attention to every detail. She combines that precision with abstractions and parts that are applied almost sculpturally on canvas. Most of her subjects are derived from her immediate surroundings, making most her works populated by her friends, neighbors and pets. Her works reminds us of the bars, dancers and actors of Otto Dix and George Grosz, but also refer to Jean-Michael Basquiat and the Old Masters. With her works, Heck synthesizes different styles, combining elements from expressionism and surrealism with social realism.
