'Multikulti Sause' by Kati Heck
Kati Heck is unveiling a new exhibition of works in her first solo show entitled 'Multikulti Sause' at Tim Van Laere Gallery. The show consists of seven monumentally-sized paintings, 2 photographic works and a series of drawings. Her paintings are staged with figure from her immediate environment, arranged to heighten drama and irony. They depict things that often happen in her studio--gatherings of an entire gang of strange visitors, old men, indie kids, her friends. The nude femaile form is confrontational, verging on softcore porn. Heck was born in Dusseldorf, Germany and works in Antwerp today.
