Sandi Kuper is a Medical Doctor and Artist who draws on her medical knowledge to create art that bridges the gap between science and aesthetics. She works in a range of mediums, but has a a special interest in printmaking and works at the Blue Door Studio in Johannesburg.
Her influences are first a need to heal, stemming from years of working with patients both on a physical and deeper emotional level.
Being a long distance off-road runner her personal invigoration is derived from a higher source gained from the outdoors, something much larger and more permanent than us as a human race.
Her work takes an in-depth view at pathways both externally between cities and countries, and internally, within the connections of the nerve pathways within our brains.
She explores disease and dis-ease within these areas and draws on clinical experience and an accumulation of medical science imagery to convey a personal account of how Alzheimers disease and memory loss permeates and devastates family life. This memory loss fragments family unity, dignity, and intelligence.
