New Kathy Botha exhibition continues journey
ARTIST Kathy Botha’s new exhibition, Equilibrium, is opening at the Alliance Française in Richmond Hill today at 12pm.
The opening function at 17 Mackay Street, Richmond Hill, will run until 2pm and a cash bar will be available. The work will be on view until September 29.
Born in Salisbury, Rhodesia (now Harare, Zimbabwe) in 1951, Botha emigrated to Port Elizabeth in 1980. Having studied art at school and later fashion design and pattern cutting at the then Clothing Institute of Rhodesia, she ran a successful clothing design business in the Bay for 25 years, until the call to paint became too strong to ignore.
Botha studied fine art at the Nelson Mandela University for five years, followed by two years of private study with Professor Greg Kerr.
Her first solo exhibition, Emergence, was held at ArtEC in 2012, and her second, Resonance, was at the GFI Art Gallery last year.
Equilibrium, Botha’s new series of paintings, is a continuation of the two previous exhibitions and serves as an analogy of her own personal growth and inner creative journey, which involves “surrendering the need to control”.
