Concrete Forms

The latest sculptural work from Gary Brooks

Date: Sep 27 – Oct 10Space: Small Gallery

Gary Brooks has been painting and exhibiting in galleries around New Zealand for the last 15+ years. About 3 years ago his creativity took a new direction when he started experimenting with concrete;

‘Working with concrete is very different to painting, in that you are relying just on your hands to create something and not a paint brush.’

After much experimenting and a few failures, the ‘orb’ evolved to what it is today. Although Gary does more than the orbs, these have become his signature piece and he has become known as the ‘concrete orb guy’.

His popular orbs are now featured in galleries and retail stores around New Zealand.

‘People seeing them for the first time are always surprised by the glow they create and always think there is actually a light in them.’

Following on from the orbs, Gary has been experimenting with different forms and vessels, constantly experimenting with different forms and colours to create the ultimate piece. Come and see what he has been up to!

Join Gary and friends at the opening of his exhibition, Friday 27 September, 5-7pm. All welcome and light refreshments will be served.
