Kirsten van den Boogard, artist of ART Galerie 7, Cologne

Heike Sistig has used painting and drawing as a medium of expression since her early childhood.  Besides creating art herself, she also deals with the pedagogic and therapeutic aspect of art and has also worked as an editor for children’s television for many years.

Since ten years her collages have been exhibited in different galleries, exhibitions, as well as the Cologne City museum. Her works are developed during varying day times and situations. Sistig thereby creates universes full of phantasy that appear like altered realities.  She puts things, we are hardly aware of in everyday life, into a new context, makes them interact and communicate.  The painstaking way Sistig works is essential to her collages: for those, she layers several collected images or newspaper cut outs and her droll drawings, which leads to a convoluted and composed appearance.  Through this layering some of the works become three-dimensional .  Sistig’s  collages and drawings are her constant companions that may reflect her different emotions throughout the day – her secret friends to whom she opens up to.  Although the works are rich of details and feature a complex composition, they are unedited, which gives them a spontaneous and unbiased character. The artist’s secret friends tell stories that are boundless to their creator, as well as the spectator.
