Although dominated by recurring human faces and bodies, the Award-Winning Australian artist Eddie Botha’s work also touches on the interaction between people and nature, people and technology, animals, and animals. For him, nature and technology often underpin many of our human experiences. By juxtaposing us with them, hard with soft, biological with the material, Eddie prompts us to reflect upon the ways that contemporary contexts shape ourselves and inform our behaviors.
