Laura Tack (b. 1988) is a Belgian painter, now living in Marrakech, Morocco. Tack’s work deals with the complexity between creation and destruction. This tension is also translated in Tack’s use of thick layers of mixed paint and concrete which she works onto the canvas with different tools. Building layer upon layer of dripping paint, thick strokes and overlapping abstractions, she tends to work on multiple canvases at the same time. Tack constructs, deconstructs and reconstructs on large scale canvases, letting the images show as she builds them up. Her practice doesn't want to be explained. Her paintings don't want to be explained. They want to be experienced. They want to exist, till it takes on a life on its own.
Laura Tack has a master degree in Fine Arts.
She has been part of collectives since 2010. Since 2015 she has been freelance working as an art production assistant for several projects such as List I Ljosi in Seydisfjordur, Iceland; Contour, Biennial of Moving Image Mechelen, Belgium and Lunga festival, Iceland.
