The exhibition will feature 15 beautiful pieces of art which can be enjoyed at anytime between 11:00am and 21:00pm, from the 10th until the 30th of August at the hotel.
This exhibition will be launched with an exclusive event on the 10th of August at 19:30. Guests can view the pieces, speak to the artist and find out more about this unique art form, while enjoying a welcome drink. This event is free to attend, but numbers are limited, so guests are asked to confirm their attendance with the hotel.
Fabric and light play a key role in the development of his works. He plays with shadows, shapes and the colours of the carefully selected silks he uses. These are then transformed using the techniques of tessellation. Inspired by the Japanese origami, he converts the fabric into delicate geometric shapes and accentuates them using light. The work of Pierre Louis Geldenhuys is based on a solid knowledge of geometry and his experience as a fashion designer, allowing him to join wild silk with tessellations to create beautiful works of art.
