Check out the work of Jaco Roeleffs, a local sculptor whose creations are a fusion between art and the natural world, on display at “Flowing Forms,” a unique art exhibition in Brookfield.
Mr Roeleffs is renowned for his ability to weave organic materials and found objects into sculptures that challenge the boundaries between reality and imagination. His creations are deeply rooted in themes of nature, human connection, and the ephemerality of existence.
Set in the picturesque Brookfield Rose Garden, “Flowing Forms” boasts a collection of 20 sculptures by 10 local artists.
Alongside Jaco Roeleffs, artists such as Antone Bruinsma, John Fegan, Colleen Lavender, Fred Beel, Russell Solomon, and Nina Summers have contributed their unique sculptures. Each piece tells its own story, reflecting the individual style and vision of its creator.
These pieces are crafted from a variety of materials, including stone, steel, aluminium, and bronze, each harmonising with the natural beauty of the rose garden. The venue itself adds an extra dimension to the artworks, providing a natural canvas that enhances their visual appeal.
Unlike traditional art openings, which officially started its run on 9 Dec 2023, “Flowing Forms” offers a more relaxed and immersive experience.
The exhibition, set until June 2024, invites visitors to embark on a self-guided tour, allowing them to engage with the sculptures at their own pace. Descriptions and videos accompanying each piece provide insight into the artists’ visions and processes.
This event is not just an exhibition but a platform for local artists to showcase their work to a broader audience. It reflects Brookfield’s commitment to nurturing and promoting local talent. The sale of these sculptures also offers an opportunity for art enthusiasts to own a piece of this unique artistic endeavour.
“Flowing Forms” is a must-visit for anyone interested in the intersection of art, nature, and community spirit.
