Angela Kaisers is a conceptual artist with a background in photography. Her artworks reflect on people’s behavior within structures of power as well as in situations of emotional conflict and question what we have comfortably taken for granted. Drawing from her constantly growing archive of scenes from animated cartoons and photographs found on the internet, in the news and social media, she creates new narratives with a humorous twist that stimulate awareness without being didactic. Appropriating and abstracting the found footage material with image editing programs, she generates digital collages that form the base for her acrylic paintings and machine embroideries.
Angela Kaisers studied photography in San Francisco and Amsterdam (B.F.A, Gerrit Rietveld Academie) and Art in Context in Berlin (M.A., University of the Arts Berlin).
Angela lives and works in Vienna.
