Botha has found inspiration for his work in government texts and religious icons, objects that show belief, faith, observation, transgression and forgiveness.[3] Among the mediums he uses are treated wood, books, acrylic enamel paint, oil paint, steel, Indian ink, bronze, paper, and marble.[4]

The artist explains; “My works are a process of distillations...They attempt to reduce all-encompassing ideas and universal factors down to their core idea.” Exploring along the way “intercepting variables” and “patterns”[5]
