Anton Kannemeyer: Fear of a Black Planet
Anton Kannemeyer... I love the white middle class... (2008, Acrylic on canvas). From the exhibition Anton Kannemeyer: Fear of a Black Planet at Michael Stevenson Gallery in Cape Town, SA. "...Also known as Joe Dog, the creator of darkly satirical comics published in the Bitterkomix anthologies of which he is co-editor, Kannemeyer is a prolific producer of prints and drawings, and has recently extended his practice to include paintings in acrylic on canvas. The shift in medium allows him to translate his subversive imagery onto a larger scale, heightening the awkward relationship viewers often have with his work. Kannemeyer will also exhibit large-scale drawings for the first time, in addition to smaller drawings and prints."
