Taking a short holiday for the brain
In a recent show, she featured 2 main pieces of her current work. One which was titled “Have a nice day!”, featured five smaller works made of layered wood. Each piece cut, shaped, primed and sprayed before being applied to its major base. Each of these bright images conjures up scenes of faraway sunny places, more commonly experienced while on summer holiday.
The second work is a singular piece titled “Nothing matters”. Derived from a simple A4 design, the motif doesn’t actually have an unspoken deeper meaning. It is rather an exercise in visual enjoyment and cleaning our brains of all the dark negative messages and images that we are fed on a daily basis.
It is clear to see that Kaiser’s work is a product of growing up in a tradesman family. She is just as comfortable with a Montana BLACK or Montana GOLD can in hand as she is with a jigsaw or a Montana Acrylic marker. With attention to detail, she presents artwork that communicates on many levels, all of them positive.
