Frau Heck, jetzt mal in Ernst

Kati Heck


Painting, 130 x 100 cm.
Materials: oil and charcoal on canvas

Collection: Private collection - Courtesy Tim Van Laere Gallery, Antwerp.

In many of her self-portraits, Kati Heck presents the viewer with a serious look. In this regard Frau Heck, jetzt mal im Ernst comprises, as the title intimates, no exception. With swollen eyes and a look tinged with regret, the artist holds a tiny, finely adorned coffin in her hands. Just the perfect size for the little bird perched on her shoulder. Below, a cavalcade of figures and animals pierce the melancholic atmosphere.
