Hein Botha

“I draw and paint because I am compelled to do so.
It allows and empowers me to explore and express my understanding of nature, objects, people, myths, moments and time.
I feel that the process of image making should echo the ongoing shifting and shaping of the earth and it’s inhabitants and refresh our worldview.
The beauty and powerful presence of the marks left by the indigenous people of this land and scars of the passage of geological time forms the basis of the inspiration that informs my work.
Through drawing, and painting I hope to add to the way we look and relate to the world and our place amongst the stars and add to the stories told over time within the brief time we spend on our home planet.”
