Conrad Botes




Conrad Botes is from the Western Cape in South Africa and his own description of his work reads: "The sharp lines of his figuration coupled with the bold strident colours, the juxtaposition of symbols and subjects, serve to amplify the contradictions and exigencies of South African culture and society. Racial conflict, economic and religious status symbols, false values and cultural mystifications are at the centre of Botes' crude, ironic, yet naïve attacks." His work has been celebrated in South Africa and if you are interested you can purchase it here.

Conrad has a show on at Michael Stevenson along with Claudette Schreuders at the moment. Thanks for reminding me - I'll go and check it out this weekend.
