Napier based artist Gary Brooks has been painting and exhibiting throughout NZ for nearly 20 years, exhibiting and selling his acrylic paintings in galleries around NZ.
His creativity took a new direction within the last few years, when he started experimenting with concrete using casting techniques. After much experimentation, Gary’s iconic ‘orb’ evolved to what it has become today. Distinct in its organic shell-like form and captivating glowing interior, the orbs have become his much-loved signature piece. Gary mixes each batch of concrete by hand and uses no mechanics in any of his art process which ensures each creation is entirely individual.
Gary Brooks works at Gallery Te Puna include a range of concrete and foil objects of art.
