HAZARD Gallery presents David Brits’ Sketches for the Cathedral of Johannesburg.
This is Brits’ fourth solo exhibition and the artist’s first with HAZARD Gallery. In this show, Brits presents a set of designs for a fictional basilica in Johannesburg, South Africa’s economic capital. These include sketches and maquettes of stained glass windows and chasubles, the embroidered robes worn by priests.
The series is a synthesis of two modes of working featuring silkscreen prints and glass wall hangings. Brits blends his signature use of abstract snake forms and of halftone pattern. Born with partial colour blindness, it is the first time the artist exhibits works using colour.
Opening: 6pm, Friday 9 September
Exhibition continues until Sunday 2 October
There will be an informal artists walkabout on Sunday 14 September between 1pm – 3pm.
