A pop-up exhibition at Gatakers Creative Space showcasing recent works that rise from observations and intimations about place and planetary well-being.

The artworks are a fusion of Wilhelmus's guiding interests, namely the aesthetics of visual form and the expression of the real in abstraction. 

Breath Moratorium features low-relief paintings on board, selected small-scale revolving sculptures and video works. The media used include fine-art media as well as common construction material and utilitarian ready-made found objects.

About the artist

Born in Holland, Wilhelmus Breikers arrived in Australia at the age of 7, completing a visual art degree in Brisbane in his early twenties. A long-term resident of Hervey Bay, Wilhelmus has continued to develop his art practice and has been keenly involved in the cultural life of the Fraser Coast community.

Artist in Residence

As part of 'Breath Moratorium', Wilhelmus will be live in the Creative Space working on new sketches.
Drop in between 10am and 2pm from 26th to 30th November, 2024 for a chat.
