STEVENSON, Johannesburg, announces Wim Botha’s new solo exhibition, his seventh with the gallery, opening on 13 August and running until 11 September 2015.

In this exhibition Wim Botha presents a new body of work that is singularly focused on Michelangelo’s first Pietà, engaging with the classic marble 15th century original using similarly traditional materials, such as bronze and oil paint.

Following his 2004 Mieliepap Pietà, a life-size replica modelled from maize meal, Botha exhibits a full-scale bronze extrapolation of the Pietà initially carved from polystyrene blocks, a suite of 116 studies on canvas and paper, and a drawing in three dimensions.

The exhibition opens on Tuesday 18 August, from 6 to 8pm.
