Hecker’s practice seeks to re-contextualize overlooked, discarded and beat up objects of the everyday. Through her pristinely painted canvases and highly finished sculptures, the mundane is humorously and sensitively elevated. Much like the exhibition title, the form belies the subject. Throughout it all, Hecker allows her viewer a window into her own aesthetic experiences while the persistent passage of time is challenged in the memorialization of her subjects.
Hecker has shown extensively at institutions such as the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Menil Collection and ArtPace, and in commercial and university galleries and alternative spaces throughout the United States.
