Fleur au Soleil, a solo exhibition by Roelof Rossouw, will be opening at the Cape Gallery on Sunday January 13, at 4.30pm. “Before I became successful my mother suggested that I paint flowers, meaning as in a still life. I told her that I was not interested, but then later I was inspired to paint flowers in sunlight, as in a garden. Since then I have often painted gardens that belong to private homes, universities, parks, wine farms and botanical gardens. The most important garden being the enclosed Jardin de Iris of the Paris Botanical Garden where I painted plein air studies for two days one June,” said Rossouw. The Cape Gallery is open Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 5pm and Saturday from 10am until 2pm. The exhibition runs until Saturday February 2.
