This catalogue accompanies Conrad Botes' first solo exhibition at Michael Stevenson. Botes' imagination is embedded with the evils of apartheid, its obsession with power and repression, the violence and anarchy of the times and the moralising role of the Dutch Reformed Church. His latest work is less overtly concerned with politics however, opening itself up to wider concerns. A sense of masculine identity in crisis runs throughout the show, as does Botes' distinctive comic aesthetic and dark humour.
