ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Androëtta Bekker is an artist based in Cape Town. She finds inspiration in the depth and complexity of human emotion, striving to create art that captures the deep nuance and intricacy of people’s inner thoughts and feelings. Her portraits investigate how humans seldom experience only one emotion at a time- how sadness can be tinged with joyful nostalgia, for example, or pride darkened by fear and anger. The ambiguity of much of her portraiture also allows viewers to project their own emotions onto her subjects, creating a kind of open-ended conversation between the viewer and the viewed.
