Kata Gaál (b. 1984, Budapest, H) has always had an autonomous and experimental approach and, despite her young age, she creates a characteristic visual world in her works. Her highly individual collage and montage techniques require special materials such as wax, wood or pieces of fabric built into the artworks creating interesting and relief-like surfaces on the wooden panels. Her paintings usually reflect on her own experiences, so in her works we can see the actual universal questions in which she is interested. Currently, important topics presented in her works are stereotypical social and gender norms and how these norms are changing with time. Specifically, questions relating to the role of women, relationships, clothing, dominance, or the question of having a child are explored.
