Francois Gerber

Francois Johannes Gerber
Born in Oudtshoorn.
University of Stellenbosch, 1990 BA(Hons) in Fine Art.

Francois taught art at Despatch High School until 1993. The artist confesses to finding it difficult to speak about his own art or to evaluate it critically.

Like Monet, he does not regard himself as much of a theoretician, and does not really have an interest in commentary and involvement or so-called "engagement”. He concentrates on still life painting, and draws with sensitivity. His still life paintings are relatively classical ,lightly fragmented in their composition, and reflect a lively awareness of colour-quality
