Andrew Kayser: Not Enough Time to Do Nothing
Running presently at THK Gallery, Cape Town is Not Enough Time to Do Nothing by Andrew Kayser. Embracing ambiguity and contradiction, Kayser’s works are both a critique and reconciliation of his coming of age, depicting saccharine suburban scenes disconnected from the larger social reality.
Andrew Kayser (b. 1975, South Africa) is a contemporary artist living and working in inner-city Johannesburg, South Africa. He graduated from the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten (Royal Academy of Art), Den Haag, Netherlands in 2001 and went on to participate in several exhibitions in and around the Netherlands before returning to South Africa in 2005.
