Eddie Botha
Strange, stranger, strangerest

28 June - 22 July 2012



Ideas of people, objects and places being strange intrigue Eddie Botha. Strange, Stranger, Strangerest is a series of

stories, anecdotes and observations; sketched, drawn and doodled in ink, pencil and paint on paper, board

and old cupboard doors.

 

Inspired by technology, lust and nature. Botha explores, through an ironic humour, notions of human

advancement from a physiological vantage point, exploring themes and issues of greed, sin, politics and

religion.   Strange, Stranger, Strangerest's thesis is that intrinsic opportunity arises from diversity, yet it

all starts with a bit of strangeness.

 

Eddie Botha is a visual and landscape artist, from South Africa, Malaysia and now, Newcastle. Graduating from Pretoria

University, he was first recognized for his artistic genius at age 5.
