Fleurs de La Motte confirms La Motte Wine Estate’s flair with the finer things in life.
The new exhibition in the La Motte Museum is a celebration of the floral splendour of the estate, combining the indigenous beauty of fynbos against the slopes of the Wemmershoek mountains.
The exhibition features vibrant and detailed paintings of the fynbos and flora on La Motte by Paula van Coller-Louw and a life-sized bronze sculpture, The Blushing Bride, to be completed over a five-month period in the La Motte Museum, by Toby Megaw.
Stellenbosch-based Van Coller-Louw, acclaimed for her intriguing blossoms and symbolic commentary of plant life through four solo and 50 group exhibitions over the last 17 years, explores a new and developed perspective with her work for Fleurs de La Motte.
As an interactive and educational addition to the exhibition, Toby Megaw will be sculpting a life-sized version of The Blushing Bride in the La Motte Museum.
The sculpture will be casted in bronze and introduced to the La Motte gardens in the second half of the year.
Fleurs de La Motte opens in the La Motte Museum on 1 February 2018 and will be on exhibition until 15 July 2018. The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 09:00 to 17:00 and entrance is complimentary.
