Opening in the Small Dog Gallery
Saturday 8 March 2 – 3.30pm
Rina Botha finds the female figure in the New Zealand scenery and conveys it in her rolling landscapes. Gentle hills, verdant forests and wild waves become potent symbols of the primal feminine power inherent in nature. The female form reveals strength, fluidity, beauty, passion and power.
The feminine is depicted at times with tender subtleness and at other times with extreme obviousness. There is a richness and fullness in her work that draws you in to explore mother earth and feel the energy of nature pulsing within.
Once you immerse yourself in the artist’s world, you may perceive your local landscape with an altered sense, finding the female energy within your surroundings waiting to be released on canvas.
